#417: 2013.04.21

this edition of framework:afield has been produced in germany by regular 
contributor d.l. lutz. notes from the producer:

Earscape "Insects"

"Some hear bug music, some hear people music. All depends on your ears," 
wrote Wafu in 1866 in Kyoto, according to David Rothenberg. This 
earscape is meant to zoom you right into the microscopic world of insects.

For a lot of sound artists, this acoustic realm seems to be fascinating 
– maybe primarily because the different scale of these beings also 
results in completely different dynamics of movement and articulation. 
"Insects" concentrates on this aspect; harvestmen fluttering around 
lamplights, myriads of maggots crawling on a compost pile, orientation 
flights of bees and cricket talks are examples of the rich morphology of 
insect sound.

The range of sounds goes from untreated field recordings to highly 
refined electro-acoustic pieces, like that of Loufopoulos who wants the 
listener to experience "a journey on the back of a bee"; interlaced are 
anecdotal and abstract representations of mechanical, animal and human 
movement that broaden the range of suggestion. Some pieces, especially 
the older ones like Bouhalassa’s, are produced with considerable 
technical effort to create soundclouds from single samples before modern 
software systems easily allowed for these effects.

So join in on an entertaining tour-de-force flight into the realm of 
bugs and critters! - d.l. lutz, berlin, germany
