“The Whale Listening Project”
Annie Lewandowski performs her immersive musical piece, “The Whale Listening Project,” with humpback whale songs she recorded with renowned bioacoustician Katy Payne and the Hawaii Marine Mammal Consortium off of Hawaii’s Kohala Coast in February 2019, commemorating the 50th anniversary of “Songs of the Humpback Whale.”
Annie Lewandowski is a composer/performer in the Department of Music at Cornell University. In 2018, her composition “Cetus: Life After Life” for whale song and the Cornell chimes, was chosen for inclusion in the Cornell Council for the Arts Biennial. In 2019, she was awarded a grant by the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future for her research exploring the creative minds of humpback whales. She has performed at festivals and venues across the United States and Europe, including the Casa da Música (Porto, Portugal), the Hippodrome (London), the Frieze Arts Fair (London), and REDCAT (Los Angeles).
