Scanner – "Ricochet: Belly Of  A Whale" (2006)

Ricochet: Belly of a Whale from Scanner on Vimeo.

The Belly Of The Whale project was conceived by two of the prime movers in the Natural Art world: Interspecies and greenmuseum.org. The goal was to create digital music from underwater sound samples of creatures including orcas, dolphins, beluga whales, sperm whale, humpback whale, Weddell and Bearded seals, lobsters, shrimp and water. Together, Interspecies and greenmuseum.org compiled a sample cd of 350 captured sounds and sent it out to many of their favorite electronic artists. Scanner, Merzbow, Yannick Dauby, LapCore, Jayne Fenton Keane, Kim Cascone and many others answered the call merging deep sea underwater sounds with their electronic aesthetics. This film was made to compliment the sounds.
