On a boat, rocking. For Whale Bells is a musical composition that was commissioned by the MSU Broad museum in the spring of 2021. This composition was created for the Whale Bells by intermedia composer, performer and sound artist Lyn Goeringer.

The work was originally presented in a virtual event online event in May of 2021, which involved performances of the work alongside a performance by David Rothberg, and a panel discussion with Jenny Kendler, Andrew Bearnot, David Rothberg and Lyn Goeringer about working with whales, whale bones, and notions of sea and seafaring.
