AquaNightFlight (Sarah Peebles)
and the “the moon-o-lator” (Rob Cruickshank) 2006
"AquaNightFlight" is a 60-90 minute live multi-channel audio performance involving
processed audio of insects via laptop, regular and under-water loud speaker(s),
and 2 mixing bowls with speaker drivers (above water). I control the audio manipulation (Max/MSP)
and the mix of discreet audio channels to the loudspeakers and speaker drivers.

and is made from a drop-in attachment for a Sawyers/GAF projector.

audio sources: Sounds of bees (a. and c.) were recorded with the assistance of Frank Lindsay at Lindsay Apiaries near Wellington, New Zealand and (b.) P.O. Hellgren, Bollnas, Sweden. A. and B. above in these recordings, the bee wings vibrate against the glass and cause the containers to ring at their resonant frequencies. Cicada and other insects (f.) from Leslie Street Spit, Toronto and (d.) from Wellington, New Zealand. De-tuned shoh (mouth-organ) played by Peebles. Birds (g) recorded in Paparoa National Park (South Island West coast). All sound sources recorded by Peebles.
