About the Piece:
This piece explains the theory about humpback whale sound production. Both male and female humpback whales can vocalize, but only the males have been recorded to produce long, complex melodies, something very unique to not only to this species, but to the entire marine mammal class. Because it is difficult to physically analyze this phenomenon due to their size and agility in water, this is a theoretical model of how whales produce sound.
UPDATE: As I worked on a mural in Maui, I worked alongside humpback whale sound researchers. What a serendipitious situation! I was able to revise this piece to be a more accurate rendition explaining why humpback whales create songs in the first place. Researchers at NOAA have discovered that whale songs are meant to bring a group of male whales together to assess fitness level and potential competition. Female humpback whales appear to have moderate to little interest in what the males are doing. In the end though, the most fit singer of the group gets a better chance at finding a mate. In the end, it's all done for love.
