This week I attended the world premiere of Ocean Voices as a guest of Oceana’s Ocean Council Vice Chair, Lea Haratani. The newly remodeled Academy of Science in SF was buzzing with activity and shining in spectacular fashion with science, science everywhere.
Ocean Voices is a combination of recorded sound, live music and images of the ocean. Many voices came together to express the vast, magical ocean….children from all over the nation, indigenous peoples and perhaps, a Cousteau or two….accompanied by live performances of violin, cello, guitar and keyboard. Ocean Voices was composed by sound artist Halsey Burgund and marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols, who joined forces for this amazing expression of love, science and art.
