Whale Song

Australian telecommunications company Optus asks the question, 'What if you could write a love song for a whale, and an orchestra went out into the ocean to play it?' Film director David Denneen worked with composer Bruce Heald and a specially selected chamber music group to perform music that both whales and humans could appreciate.

An orchestra was placed on a barge with film crew and sent out to serenade the whales, emulating the sounds made by male humpback whales as they migrate along the coast of Queensland.
