Shelltone Whale Project

Communicate with cetaceans and share their message to mankind using music, using sound...

Beneath the surface of the Oceans, whales are singing some amazingly complex and delicate songs, pure expression of their wisdom. It appears that anyone who approached a whale, and had a chance to listen to their songs, had the feeling that those peacefull creatures might have a tremendous knowledge still to be discovered and shared.

The mission of the "Shelltone Whale Project" is to become a link between us and the whales, by learning more from their songs, attempt to communicate with them and trying to understand their message to mankind.


Hi Pierre,

Your legacy lives on here in Maui.  At the last whaledreamers I had the Shelltone you gave me and I told its story.  The people who had not heard it were FASCINATED and inspired.  You often made jokes about it when you started to play it, implying that it was sort of a silly project.

But I don't know if you realize how inspiring it is for people.  The act of creating something, putting your heart, soul, and life savings into it out of a passion and feeling for its rightness (not out of logic or wanting to get a "return" on it) is, in itself, a very powerful act.
And the whales seem to be calling this sort of behavior out of us.  We may not know WHY we are doing what we are doing, but we can trust there is a reason.  It is sooo important that we all do this sort of thing more and more to help balance and heal a world which is ill with acts done to it by people who do things mostly for greed or some selfish gain--so your example is extremely valuable.

Also, your instrument is quite beautiful (I love the purplcolor!!).
Dolphin Dave and Sam were able to make lots of amazing sounds come out of it, although I can manage little more than a bleat so far.  That it can play underwater is unique as well.

I LOVE the Shelltone you gave me.  Thank you so much. I treasure it!  And with it will come your story to all the people I encounter in my whale journeys, the children in my classes, the future Maui Whaledreamer gatherings.  And I know that it will continue to make waves and inspire people to follow their own whaledreams.

I hope you know how valuable this project has been and continues to be for so many.

I loved all my time with you and Dominic, David and Bob.  Give them my love,
