about

One of my most memorable experiences is that of falling asleep whilst listening to the sound of seals swimming only metres away beneath the hull of our two-masted sailboat (ketch).

We were anchored in the Outer Hebrides with two of my hydrophones fed through the port-hole of our cabin into the calm waters of Mingulay Bay. And what I heard was amazing.

I wanted to share this wonderful experience with you, so I've put together this mesmerising 23 minute, binaural rendering from materials recorded that night.

The full recordings can be found in the British Library (Grey Seals WA 2021/001)
