The Song of the Ocean Live Interview

The Song of the Ocean Live Interview

This is a past event

An Interview and Q&A hosted by musician Anthony White with contributions from Professor Marcel Jaspars (chemist), Professor Abbe Brown (international intellectual property lawyer), Dr Grahame Davies (poet and lyricist) and Professor Paul Mealor (composer).

Song of the Ocean is a collaboration between science and the arts to raise awareness of the importance of the ocean for us all and to highlight the major issues of declining ocean health and the need for sustainability and planet protection.

The Song was composed by Paul Mealor, known for his work for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. The words are written by internationally-acclaimed poet, Dr Grahame Davies, and informed by ocean experts Marcel Jaspars and Abbe Brown, professors of the University of Aberdeen and members of the Deep-Ocean Stewardship Initiative. You can read more about the story behind the musical piece HERE or catch a podcast with all involved in its creation, including the composer, poet, and scientists HERE.

The Song of the Ocean Live Interview will be followed by a Q&A session where you can have all of your most pressing questions answered by the distinguished panel.
