Chant des baleines

Whale Song recording and mastering by The Oceania Project:
Trois chercheurs à Hawaii, deux ingénieurs en informatique et un biologiste marin, ont créé une application informatique pour évaluer l'entropie des sons de baleines et ils les ont comparés à une série de langues humaines. Ils en ont conclu que les sons des baleines à bosse sont équivalents aux langues humaines.

Ils ont utilisé les enregistrements du Dr Roger Payne et Dr Katy Payne, fait dans les années 1970, qui étaient les premiers scientifiques à reconnaître que les sons uniques émis par les baleines à bosse étaient en fait conscients, des chants complexes en constante évolution.

Established in 1988, The Oceania Project is an independent, nonprofit, scientific research organisation dedicated to the conservation and protection of Whales, Dolphins and the Oceans. The first phase of a long-term study of the East Australian Humpback Whales has been the major work of The Oceania Project.

Humpback Whale Songs are passed down over generations and evolve in a similar fashion to the verbally transmitted tribal lore of Australian Aboriginal Culture from where the term Songlines is derived. Songlines of the Whales Playlist:

The East Australian Humpback Whales travel in an unending cycle of migration between their birthplace in the inter-reef lagoon of the Great Barrier Reef and their Antarctic feeding areas.

Their world is comprised of vast stretches of ocean where songs emitted by the Humpback Whales can be heard over great distances. Each year the whales sing a new song. Haunting melodies of radiant joy which fill the ocean along the East Coast of Australia.

When ecosystems across the planet are collapsing and species are becoming extinct at an accelerating rate, the East Australian Humpback Whales are making a remarkable recovery. They have become Australia's national treasure and a symbol of hope for our imperilled environment.

We as the new generation of caretakers of the planet Earth have learnt from the mistakes of our elders and are helping nurture the Rebirth of a Species.
