Pavilion for Spiders Sound Tour

The main material is comprised of sounds made by spiders and insects, all originally recorded as vibrational signals. These are then combined with purely electronic sounds, whose sound structure, for example in rhythm, or pitch is similar to insect and spider noises. Next, the original sounds of nature are electro-acoustically transformed and combined as a sort of “live electronics” with urban and industrial sounds. All this combines to form a giant web of communication between humans and the rest of nature.
