Wildlife recordist Chris Watson and spatial audio sound artist Prof Tony Myatt begin a three-part journey to the Sea of Cortez hunting for the song of the largest, and possibly loudest, animal that has ever lived – the blue whale. It’s also an animal that Chris has never managed to record. Will this trip change that?
In episode one of this three-part series, pioneering nature sound recordist Chris Watson sets off on a journey to record one animal that has so far evaded his microphones – the blue whale.
Despite being the largest animals to have ever lived, much of their lives remain a mystery. As Chris travels to Mexico to try to find the whales, he meets scientists, conservationists and others who are also keen to learn more about their behaviour and the ocean environment they inhabit.
