short story about a composer, a marine biologist and middle C

I'm trying to track down a short story.

I heard it in podcast form from someone at escape artists, either escapepod or podcastle I think. The story was about a composer famous for deep and slow music getting together with a marine biologist who had determined that dolphins speak in 3D and came up with a way to communicate with them. The composer and the biologist cooperate to make a performance of music intended for people and the sea, and during their performance, blue whales come up and sing the middle C of the planet / universe.

I can't figure out the name of the story, or where I heard it from.

I figured it out. It was Asimov's not escapepod, and it was Norman Spinrad's Music of the Sphere.

Now I wish I had searched more before I asked. Oh well.
