We are pleased to offer you this trip to Iceland during the midnight sun period dedicated to whales, in cooperation with the Shelltone whale project association and its founder Pierre Lavagne De Castellan.
PLAY MUSIC WITH THE WHALES.
The mission of the Shelltone Whale Project is to play, improvise, co-write and record music with whales, sublimating through this common creation the fundamentals of interspecies communication and then to analyze and attempt to understand these data and study the effects of these songs and sounds on other living organisms such as plants, animals and humans.
Beneath the surface of the oceans, whales sing extraordinarily complex and delicate songs, pure expressions of their intense social life and wisdom. Anyone who has approached a whale and had the chance to listen to its song, has had the feeling that these peaceful creatures have an immense knowledge to discover and share.
After several years of collaboration between acoustic engineers and marine biologists, at the acoustic research laboratory of the Ecole Centrale de Nantes and Stanford University in California, the Shelltone Whale Project team has created a wind instrument inspired by the marine conch that reproduces the whales’ song on the surface and underwater.
