Ocean Sounds is a place where science meets art, and art meets people.
Through art we try to build a bridge between the often dry and hard to swallow research results and the interest of people in a creative way we want to introduce a deeper understanding of the complexity of the marine ecosystem and the human impact to trigger responsible behavior. To do this we work directly with artists to join our projects or organize workshops and festivals.
"Ocean Sounds promotes continuous awareness, understanding and commitment, to build a bridge between nature and people"

DO ANIMALS SPEAK TO EACH OTHER?
WHAT DO THEIR SONGS MEAN?
WILL WE EVER BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND THEM AND TALK BACK?
Ever since the accidental discovery of whale song in 1967 , the idea of complex animal sentience has been gaining strength within
the scientific community. A growing number of researchers and academics are exploring the idea that animals enjoy music on a
similar level to human beings.
Animal Music is the first anthology to present an overview of the current state of this vital debate. Its authors have spoken to the
leading scientists, researchers and musicians in the field to uncover hidden meanings and new perspectives. They visit the world's
largest library of animal sounds, hack into the mysterious sonic world of shrimps, travel back in time to the point where animal and
human songs diverged, and decode the latest neuroscientific findings about animal music and communication
The book includes exclusive interviews with Chris Watson; Jana Winderen, Yannick Daubyv Slavek Kwi and Geoff Sample as well
as features on Bernie Krause, David Rothenberg and Olivier Messiaen and many more.
Includes specially-compiled 60 minute CD of field recordings from the Gruenrekorder label.
