Whale Songs - Wavelet Art

.......

The songs used in the slide show are from the correct species of whale, but are not the exact recordings that were used to create the wavelets. This was the best I could do with the materials I could find! What is interesting to me is that every recording will produce a different picture... I wonder what a wavelet of my voice would look like?

Here are some more nice whale resources:

Yes, it is a fascinating thing. I'm glad slowly too, more and more people are convinced that animals do have language - language of very high sophistication.

Long ago during a linguistics course, I watched a video about a researcher from the States, on Chesapeake Bay. I think it was from a BBC series, "The Human Animal". She showed how the whales teach their young the song and that each generation builds/changes the song sent through deep slow wavelengths through 100s of kilometers of ocean. So fascinating. Here are the recordings.

Did you add recordings, David? If so, they aren't showing. I've been meaning to check our bank of nature sounds (have to remember how to get there). I know last time I checked, some were broken... what system should we use to post sounds now? I've got a few new ones : )

Yes I did! But I think Google video doesn't now allow embedding. Although I don't know why they have the embed code there. Here's the link. I'll add it to our music player, that'll work.

Wonderful! I can download it at the link... is there no easy way to collaboratively post sound files anymore??? But this is actually a video, yes? I'll try the embed code again...

It is taking more and more effort to share anything in a format that can be downloaded!! Who's going to take all those extra steps?

Here goes the embed code:

Ellen,

I "demuxed" the video and took the sound out from it. Can be done through our Super Convertor in our software 4 members page. Also a few less capable online alternatives...

Beautifully done. Thanks, David.

I have to make myself go to sleep now... bad insomnia lately! I don't want to teach on zero hours sleep!
