Our research

Why do whales sing ?

The care.

Our skills in marine bio-acoustics, our expertise in interspecies communication, our ethological analysis of whales’ behaviour at each sound emission, have enabled us to understand the impact of their songs on their health.

Indeed, we have observed that humpback whales gather in a circle around an isolated, static individual at the centre of the circle. For hours, the great male singers who make up this circle will sing, towards the individual in the centre. We found that if the individual in the center seems to be conscious during this treatment, the singers in the circle have their eyes open, but empty of any expression, they seem to be in deep meditation.

It is during these care sessions that whales emit sounds called “proteodic songs” that will act on the vibratory alignments of the amino acid chains that compose the proteins.


Cosmetics and proteodic songs.

We now know that humpback whales can live beyond a hundred years, we have known for a long time that they are cured by sound, they regenerate the cells of their epidermis, attacked by age and pollution, with certain specific songs.

We have isolated these songs intended to rejuvenate the cells of their epidermis, in order to create a anti aging cream, composed of micro auriferous algae whose active ingredients we “boost” with whale songs.

Brittany brown algae are particularly receptive to the vibratory sequences emitted by whales, our process boosts the proteins that are the source of the active principle of these algae by modifying the alignment of the amino acids that compose them and thus optimizing their “anti-aging” and “firming” effect.

The whale song is thus infused into the amino acid chain in memory and thus becomes diffused into the skin.


The “anti-pollution” songs.

Two or three weeks before birth, the male singers will gather in an underwater vortex, formed by the current, they will sing continuously different songs than those we regularly record, these songs are only broadcast at this precise time. We have realized that these proteodic songs are intended to purify their direct environment, from any chemical and organic pollution due mainly to human activities, before birth. Researchers at Princeton University can purify a drop of water, previously polluted voluntarily, with a device the size of a billiard table, which only by vibrating will make the drop of water levitate and clean it, this technique is the same as the one used by whales for more than ten million years.

We now know that whales contribute with their song to the purification of the oceans.

The singing of whales, infused in cosmetics, can protect our skin from the aggression of pollution, the active principle of repellent proteins then acts as a protective barrier against the aggressions of pollution including hydrocarbon fumes in our cities.

The functioning of proteodic songs.

Everyone knows that music affects the mood of humans and some animals. Since the 1960s, many researchers have observed the effects of certain music on plant growth. Joël Sternheimer, Doctor of Theoretical Physics and Musician, proposed an explanation of these effects, making it possible to produce them with molecular precision, from plants sensitive to their sound environment to humans who, by listening carefully, can recognize their suitability for themselves. His research, for more than 40 years, has predicted and indirectly highlighted that:

The different levels of organization of matter (inert or living) are linked by “scale waves” that ensure their coherence
During the protein synthesis process, amino acids emit sequences of quantum signals that constitute a specific melody of each protein
The audible transpositions of these melodies can influence in real time, via a form of resonance between successive frequencies, the rate of protein synthesis.




Waves and material

Quantum physics has shown that the elementary particles that make up atoms, molecules or molecular assemblies can have two aspects: corpuscular and wave-like. Any quantity of matter can be associated with a quantum wave whose frequency can be calculated.

From these concepts, genodics makes it possible to characterize particular waves, naturally associated with the process of protein synthesis. These are large molecules, synthesized in organisms from information derived from genome genes. Proteins are a major component of life: they have an active role in almost all its processes.

Proteins consist of one or more amino acid chains. There are 22 of these are basic molecules that make up all proteins and are common to all living organisms. Each amino acid molecule has a corresponding wave whose frequency has been calculated.

The song of proteins

For the synthesis of a protein, during its transcription on a ribosome, the succession of amino acid attachments results in the emission of a sequence of frequencies characteristic of this protein. Of course, the waves associated with the amino acids that make up proteins have very high frequencies, which are inaudible to the human ear. However, their transposition into the audible range allows us to have an exact, homothetic representation of the melodies associated with the synthesis of each protein.

Observations made so far indicate that living organisms are able to recognize these series of harmonized sounds, directly attributed to the amino acids whose sequence composes proteins and which we call proteodies. Genodics also explains how to compose melodies in phase opposition, which have an opposite effect.

Experience shows that listening to these two types of proteodies can stimulate or inhibit the synthesis of any type of protein, in a specific way, but modulo the filter of the subject concerned who appears capable, when listening, of recognizing what he needs. The objective effect produced thus appears to be correlated, less with the stimulus itself, than with the subjective reaction to its listening, which constitutes a refined form of diagnosis. Proteodies thus make it possible to regulate, if necessary, the biological processes in which proteins are involved.


The subject in the subject matter

Genodics explains this phenomenon by the existence of scale waves that link the different levels of matter structure, from elementary particles to complete organisms and their environment, as soon as a quality of subject can be recognized. These particular waves allow the dimensions of the “measuring subject”, present in all the components of life – and even matter -, to manifest their specificity, in order, if possible, to harmonize with the other levels. Thus, the sensitivity of a particular organism to a series of frequencies, a priori resonating with its own, will only manifest itself if it corresponds to a need, certainly localized at first sight, but confirmed by the other scales of this organism.


Principles of cooperation between Pierre Lavagne de Castellan and the Genodics laboratory

Pierre Lavagne de Castellan, a marine bioacoustician, has become a specialist in the singing of humpback whales. He first studied them for years in California, including with researchers at Stanford University. In 2013, he set up a new work base in Deshaies, Guadeloupe, to continue the Shelltone Whale Project research there.

The recording and careful observation of the songs of these large marine mammals has enabled him to observe that they have a wide range of songs, which they keep in mind and which they enrich as they meet. These songs allow them to communicate interspecies, including with humans. They also meet, and even first of all, functional needs: exchanging information, caring for themselves, cleaning their environment, and even enriching the plankton intended to feed lactating females. To feed their calves, they must produce 300 litres of milk per day!

Genodics has original know-how for the analysis of possible interactions between sound series and biological processes. Indeed, the work of Joël Sternheimer, physicist and designer of Genodics, has enabled him to highlight wave dimensions in the functioning of living organisms. Protein synthesis at the cellular level is accompanied by the emission of a series of wave pulses, which correspond to the succession of amino acids that make up each protein. The frequencies (inaudible) corresponding to each amino acid were calculated. Experience has shown that the transposition of these wave sequences into the audible range, which we call “proteody”, can interfere with the synthesis process of the corresponding proteins, with a very high specificity. The diffusion of the specific protein of a protein increases the rate of synthesis of this protein by living cells. This is of course on condition that the cells need these proteins, i. e. that they have prepared the messenger RNAs with the corresponding information.

The musical interactions that Pierre Lavagne de Castellan has developed with humpback whales allow him to approach them, observe their behaviour and record their songs in many circumstances. Through observation, he was able to identify songs related to certain activities. It thus acts as a “sound picker”, which can allow for more in-depth analysis. Having identified Genodics’ skills, he proposed applying them to the analysis of the songs he records, to determine their possible correspondence with protein structures. Indeed, proteins are the keys to all living processes. For example, it has already been observed that bird songs in spring correspond to flowering proteins. Knowledge of proteins that could correspond to humpback whale songs could explain the functionalities of some of their songs.

The reproduction

Calves are born precisely one month after their arrival in the so-called breeding area in warm waters. They are never born randomly during the rest of the year, for obvious reasons of migration calendar management. This means that their design, nine months before, is precisely “organized” by the community. Whales live in families of several dozen individuals, very close relatives unite them. Thus, to avoid inbreeding problems, families from large territories, such as the Caribbean Arc, or the Hawaiian Archipelago, meet once a year, like a Pow Wow, so that young breeders from distinct and distant families can meet. About a month before this Pow wow, the male singers will sing in their respective families for the young breeders, proteodic songs, which will stimulate the libido of the young males and also activate the hormones of the young females, so that the meeting, during the Pow Wow, is profitable. Similarly, to avoid random or inbred births, once the encounter is over, the singers will then sing songs that will have the effect of “musical bromide” for young males and will slow down the hormonal system of young females.

Still in the context of reproduction, whales have for fifteen million years, always taken care to avoid the risks of inbreeding. One of their techniques to solve this problem, which we have discovered, allows us today to explain the mystery of the famous “annual international tube” of humpback whales…

We know that all the whales of the world have developed, in collaboration with the men they have known for thousands of years, “regional” songs, a folk repertoire of their own, which they sing regularly throughout the year, these songs, transmitted from generation to generation, are in fact the “supports” intended to transmit the sounds and protein sequences that they will use throughout their lives for the reasons we are describing.

However, in addition to this personal repertoire, each family of whales from all oceans sings a song from another region, on a specific occasion and at a specific time. This famous worldwide tube, whose geographical origin changes every year, has in fact an essential function for reproduction.

This “tube” is sung by all the male singers in the world about a month before the breeding “Pow wow” for young breeders, this song contains protein sequences that will modify the dna in the sperm cells of young males, so, nine months after the “Pow Wow”, babies are born in all oceans, babies who in addition to their own territory, their genetic code will contain dna from the region where the “tube” originates.


The purification of their environment

Two or three weeks before the births, the singers will gather in an underwater vortex, formed by the currents, they will sing songs without interruption intended to purify the environment, from any chemical, organic and certainly spiritual pollution. Today we know how to clean a drop of water, previously polluted voluntarily, with a machine the size of a billiard table, which only by vibrating, will make the drop of water levitate and clean it. The whales’ songs will one day clean up our swimming pools, our harbours, our lakes, our rivers….

Whales, on the other hand, contribute with their singing to the maintenance of the oceans… Unfortunately, as we have seen for several decades, they are forced to sing louder and louder…



Humpback whales migrate from cold water feeding areas that are abundant in zooplankton, rich in protein, areas of birth, warm water, absent from zooplankton, but containing phytoplankton, low in protein.

Females store in their fat, in the feeding zone, the proteins that will be necessary to give their calves a milk rich in proteins during the birth period.

However, this “stock” is not always sufficient to cover breastfeeding over a period of several months.

The singing males then enter the scene, in tropical areas, they encircle masses of phytoplankton in suspension, and for several days, even weeks, they will sing songs containing protein sequences, which will act on the assembly of the amino acids that compose these proteins, modify their connections and thus create new richer proteins that will then allow suckling females to get an additional protein supply.

The study of these particular songs will allow us to design a new agronomy, free of fertilizers, chemical fertilizers, pesticides… etc….


The memory of water

This documentary provides a better understanding of the fundamentals of our research and the process we use to “inform” our moisturizing cream through the amino acids that compose the active proteins of brown algae.
