Whale songs have been interpreted by researchers, who found that the large mammal’s communications followed recognisable patterns and formula – much like human language. Scientist Roger Payne and researcher Scott McVay were able to create a new form of notation from the sonographs of the underwater tunes, in turn highlighting the reoccurring sounds and rhythms of their calls. Further research by scientists since has even uncovered rhymes and different whale dialects…

The aim of the project was to highlight the ‘strange surroundings most of us walk through everyday’, presenting them from an altered point of view. The spaces and textures in the piece create almost science-fictional scenes, elevating the mundane to the magnificent…
