Sara Niksic a.k.a. Inner Child is a bioacoustician and musician. She is doing a PhD on humpback whale song ontogeny, evolution and vocal learning. Sara is also developing innovative approaches to science communication, with art as her main tool. Lately she has been focusing on music as a way of grabbing people’s attention and interest in her bioacoustics research. In collaboration with several electronic music producers, she released a compilation album that explains the basics of what we know about humpback whale song. The aim of this album is to bring awareness of other species that have culture and highly advanced communication.
