As part of the New Music Week Artists in Residence centrepiece concert, oboeist James Turnbull performed Emily Doolittle’s 'Social Sounds from Whales at Night'. The title of this piece comes from the label on one of Luke Rendell’s recordings of sperm whale codas that he gave to Doolittle when she was working on this piece. These recordings, as well as others from St Andrews researchers of grey seal and musician wren sounds, helped inform the composition of a piece largely inspired by Patrick Miller’s recordings of humpback whale song.
