Sunday August 23rd, 11am-1pm, Normans Bay, near Pevensey, East Sussex, BN24 6PS
The iconic Finback Whale of Museum of Zoology, Cambridge was washed ashore at Normans Bay near Pevensey in 1865. Join us as we return to the site with wildlife sound recordist Chris Watson to record the sounds of the sea. These recordings are for inclusion in the Ocean Song soundscape that will accompany the skeleton in its new home, a fabulous Whale Hall being built as part of the Museum’s redevelopment and due to open in 2016. Learn about recording the sounds of nature, discover the sounds beneath the ocean’s waves that are normally out our hearing, and have a go at collecting sounds yourself. This workshop is free. Places are limited and booking essential. To book a place, email here
