Humpback whale songs are transferred from year to year and evolve in a similar fashion to the verbally transmitted tribal lore of Aboriginal cultures from where the term songlines is derived. 

Songlines documents the evolution of the intricate and beautiful East Australian Humpback song. An hour of pristine digital recordings selected from five different years between 1992 and 2008 which draw the listener into a mysterious and majestic world.

The CD can be found on the Songlines of the whales microsite and on iTunes.
Cover and CD showing the progression of the whale song over 5 different years.
The line work represents the axis of movement the whales have in their environment.
