Hive Study no. 1 Sarah Peebles

This short work incorporates the following and is both an audio work for loudspeakers and a demonstration of an audio installation which runs indefinitely in a small or medium-sized room.

1. regular loudspeakers project recordings of bees inside hives, bees/planes/cicadas recorded from inside bottles, shoh (Japanese mouth-organ), manipulated via Max/MSP software, realtime DSP;

2. spun stainless steel bowls attached to speaker drivers (roland star transducers) resonate with the audio input of manipulated recordings of bees inside glass jugs; manipulated using Unity DS-1 software

All prerecorded audio via G3 powerbook; shoh sample also by Peebles.
