Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Playing Clarinets to Whales

Ever wondered if Humpback Whales like Clarinet music?

Thankfully Dr David Rothenberg of the New Jersey Institute of Technology may have found the answer to that question in his paper To Wail With a Whale: Anatomy of an Interspecies Duet.

"Why?" you may ask, and thankfully the author tells us...

Having spent several years playing my clarinet to birds, sometimes getting a response, sometimes not, I was eager to try this interspecies jamming with humpback whales.

On that note, I think I go see if Tortoises like the drums...
