What better way to get into whale song than musical accompaniment? When I was young I received a discs of whale songs on Christmas morning. It was one of two nature-themed musical discs I was given. The first, a rainforest themed soundtrack. You could hear the dapples of raindrops on leaf fronds. It blew my mind. Nature recordings have come a long way since then.
Listen to Kamal's Reiki whale song disc for a great rendition of whale song. The whale recordings are treated with care, and integrated very well with vocal accompaniment and ambient musical compositions. They go very well together. Finally a way to listen to whale burping without turning the entire room off. Great for getting into that very focused zone of art-making.
You can download the whole disc here from iTunes.
