This fall, a team of scientists (backed up by a crew of documentary filmmakers) will head out to the Pacific in search of "The Loneliest Whale in the World", aka "The 52 Hz Whale", in honor of the unique frequency of its vocalizations. READ THE REST

We just did a radio piece about 52 Hz: http://www.prx.org/pieces/100018-52-hz

When I first heard about this whale, I wondered if it would be possible to mount a device to pick up it's "song" and rebroadcast it in the right frequency.

My wife sent me a link about the 52 Hertz Whale late last year so I incorporated audio of it into this track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a80EqTGRvRQ

At 52 hertz, it is just higher than the lowest note on a tuba. (Wikipedia)

Excellent. Just in case they need soundtrack work, I've made a piece in which the 52Hz whale flies to the planet Pluto under the watchful gaze of the ghost of Clyde Tombaugh. Space samples abound, if you're into that kind of thing:
