Marine Anthropogenic Noise: Listening to the Ocean
Play • 27 min
In this podcast Carlos Duarte, scientist and oceanographer, discusses how anthropogenic noise—meaning noise produced by human beings and the machines they make and use—produces an impact on marine fauna, and asks how it is possible to reverse this impact of human pollution. Duarte tells us about the efforts to understand how sound communication functions in the Ocean among the different species, and the importance of art in conveying this to the general public in order to put policies into action.

The podcasts consists of interventions by Carlos Duarte, extracted from the conversation with sound artist Jana Winderen, in a talk moderated by curator and researcher José Luis Espejo that took place at the Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid on April 18, 2023, which was part of the public program of the exhibition “Wu Tsang: Of Whales.”
