MASS MoCA Sound Installation Celebrates 50-Year Conservation Legacy of “Songs of the Humpback Whale” Record

“Siren: Composers of the Sea” opens at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), offering a “true meeting of intelligences—humpback whale, human, and artificial.” Created by composer Annie Lewandowski, digital artist Kyle McDonald, and set designer Amy Rubin, the immersive sound installation celebrates the beauty and conservation legacy of the 1970 multi-platinum record Songs of the Humpback Whale, that demonstrated the species’ elaborate vocalizations for the first time.
