675: David Rothenberg: Whale Music

An illustrated and revised version of the classic book “Thousand Mile Song: Whale Music in a Sea of Sound” from 2008 on the music of whales, and what happens when human voices strive to join. Thoughtful, richly detailed, and deeply entertaining, this book uses the enigma of whale sounds to open up an underwater world of sonic mystery. In observing and talking with leading researchers from around the globe as they attempt to decipher undersea music, Rothenberg tells the story of scientists and musicians confronting an unknown as vast as the ocean.

“Every time I go out to play with whales, interesting things happen.”
