Kyma user, Robert Jarvis, will be taking his Capybara to The City of Insects at the beginning of July for a two-week residency. During his stay he will delve into the world of insect song and other entomological sounds and create a surround sound composition inspired by recordings that he makes in the local area.

Imagine a room full of butterflies… Imagine living in a beehive or an ants’ nest… Imagine going for a ride on a back of a dragonfly… what would that sound like? Robert’s new work allows the listener access to this unique sound world and to imagine life through the ears of an insect.

The resulting surround sound installation will be featured at the museum for visitors to experience from July 15th through to November 4th, 2007. Follow Robert's investigations into all things creepy crawly at
