Thousand Mile Song: Whale Music in a Sea of Sound

by David Rothenberg
£10.99   book with CD  The Perseus Books Group (Basic Books) (2010)

Thousand Mile Song: Whale Music in a Sea of Sound by David Rothenberg In Thousand Mile Song, musician and philosopher David Rothenberg uses the enigma of whale sounds to explore whether we can truly understand nonhuman minds. Interviewing scholars around the world as they attempt to decipher underwater music, Rothenberg tells the story of scientists and artists confronting an unknown as vast as the ocean.
 
Along the way, he plays his clarinet live with whales in their native habitats, from Russia to Hawaii, making interspecies music that appears on the included CD.
 
Richly detailed and deeply entertaining, Thousand Mile Song is an imaginative look at the most intriguing creatures of the ocean.
