cricket composition


This experimental installation of Luke Boorman is the first setup within a larger research project which aims to see how we can compose with the sonic properties of crickets.

With this installation i also wanted to examine if a feedback loop was created between the amplified cricket chirps and the amount of acoustic cricket song or more simply to examine the relation between the amount relation between these two ways of listening to the sound and if so, how could I develop another setup to research this more thoroughly…”
