Next to do this with squirrel sounds. They're not endangered, but I'm sure it would make some good acid techno.

I saw that Johanna Fateman had done a mix and I thought "hey, neat!"

Then I heard it. God damn that is bad.

God, they're all awful. This is supposed to help the whales how?

One of my favorite trance records of all time is this one:

Silent Harmony - Save the Whales (windows media sample).

Listening now, though, it's absurdly cheesy. I still like it, though.

If we kill all the whales would it end those awful sounds?

Someone ought to broadcast these sounds at ridiculously high power levels into the ocean to see if the submarines will beach themselves.

"If [whales] could scream do you think we would be so cavalier as to [killing them]? Maybe if they screamed all the time for no good reason." - Jack Handy

The Whale version of PitchforkMedia said this sucked... "the worst human remix since Moby."

I thought we were supposed to kill them. My musical take here and here [same song, different url]. Sorry for the self-link.

I used to be into "nature sounds" tapes. I had a few -- my favorite was "Jungle Walk", but I also had one called "Ocean Storm", which was spiced with whalesong. Great for getting to sleep, but I always dreamed I was in Star Trek IV.
