In the closing hours of At Thresholds be calmed and reach out across the inter-species barrier with the soothing songs of the humpback whale.

At Thresholds asks us to consider our place in the multispecies and renew our awareness of how we can better live with our planet’s more-than-human cohabitants. Take the time to do so in this immersive sound bathing experience. Drop in from 3pm til closing and reflect on the rich and untranslatable relationship we have with life on earth, bathed in whale song.

Songs of the Humpback Whale (1970) is the best-selling environmental album in history with over 100 000 copies sold. It publicly demonstrated for the first time the elaborate vocalisations of the humpback whales, revealing their intelligence and culture, and helping launch the international ‘Save the Whales’ campaign, and a whole industry of similar albums and recordings.
