listen to this edition here: 

this edition of framework:afield has been produced in australia by 
michela ledwidge. notes from the producer:

"This recording was made over two days - 25th and 26th of January 2014 
in Bouddi National Park, Central Coast, NSW, Australia - walking from 
MacMasters Beach to Maitland Bay and back. I wanted to capture the mix 
of surf and cicada sounds that provide such a beautiful backdrop when 
you hike along the coast. These recordings were made at different 
altitudes, in wet sclerophyll forest and up high on the cliffs. The 
common thread is the sound of the Black Prince - the cicada (Psaltoda 

"The cicada population swells to record numbers every decade or so. The 
insects spend seven years underground in nymph form but when they emerge 
at the height of summer to breed, the volume is intense. You can barely 
hear yourself. This summer the cicadas have been  the loudest I remember 
since 2003. This was recorded several weeks after the volume peaked, but 
it’s still pretty loud. You can hear the two distinctive sounds that the 
insects make. At around 35mins you can hear the rhythmic revving, 
growing louder and softer like a gentle heartbeat. Then in the loudest 
section about 46mins in, you can hear the intense continuous call of 
individual insects close-up. This bit was recorded overlooking Maitland 
Bay next to a tree covered in cicadas. You don’t always see the little 
fellas when they’re chirping but here they were crawling all over the 
trunk and branches as they hummed. Some of the harmonics they produce 
sound like electronica but all I’ve added to the mix is a small 
cross-fade between clips.

"Check the website for a link to images. For each clip I shot a 
geo-tagged reference image of the location. I hope you enjoy Bouddi 

"Recorded on a Zoom H4N."
