Oceans contain between 50% - 80% of all life on Earth.
To raise awareness of ocean conservation efforts happening around the world, this offering connects participants with marine life, through sound.
Our sound journey features recordings of whales, dolphins and human sounds from the deep waters of Monterey Bay Canyon near Santa Cruz, California.
We combine these sounds with live instruments representing the element of water to create an immersive sound and visual experience.
This project represents a collaboration between marine and human life to support our collective wellbeing and create lasting environmental impact.
