Whalesong -right now!

Right now.... In my ears. Live. These whales are singing right now, this minute...
I hooked up to a live feed from the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research's marine laboratory in the Antarctic.

Neumayer Station, Ekström Shelf Ice, Atka Bay, north-eastern Weddell Sea.
position: 70°39'S, 008°15'

I started it a few hours ago, forgot about it, there were just random ambient noises, rumbles and creaks, watery sounds.
But! just a moment ago, that haunting sound. Whalespeak. In my room.
Sometimes you hear the icebergs calve. Loud. Right now it's gone pretty quiet again.
