For all of last week i was transcribing bee sound recordings on to paper. I collected the recordings over the summer at the YSP hives. I've loved drawing all week - over layering lines and lines of noise.
I got an email from my friend David today with a link to a website about bee recordings:
Plus, i've been listening to extracts from the recordings of sound artist Francisco Lopez - absolutely amazing, intense sounds. It's been mentioned that he has used the recordings of bees, although i'm yet to find the exact work. You can listen to extracts of his work in the discography section of his website:
Also - please read this little story about a Mellotron (a keyboard instrument manufactured in the 60s and 70s that uses pre-recorded tape as its sound source) and the use of recordings of bumblebees by Gaby Stenberg.
then watch this video of someone playing the sounds:
