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
On the Tibetans mountains, buddhist monks have been playing shell trumpets for centuries. The "right conch shell"
representing the beautiful, deep, melodious and pervasive sound of the Buddhadharma.
From those establishments, we decided to create a shell that could be appropriate to unite those universes.
After two years of collaboration between acoustic engineers marine biologists and designers, the Shelltone was
born. The Shelltone is an Ocean Sound Device inspired by the conch shell. It allows anyone to play with ocean
sounds, the whale songs.
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.
Free spirit will prevail.
