Sound clip of Orca Whale Songs (9 min. 20 sec.)

The first 37 seconds have engine noise masking some of the songs.

Recorded September 9-12, 1986 in the San Juan Islands off the coast of Vancouver using SONY hydrophones and a SONY Walkman while sailing aboard the 68' ketch, Island Roamer. At the time the professional SONY recorder on board was damaged. Borrowing the SONY hydrophones from the kit, I plugged them into the microphone input of my SONY Walkman (WM-F65)FM/AM Stereo Cassette-corder) which I brought on board to play music for personal entertainment. The hydrophones were lowered over the side, and this is what happened.
