From the composer:
The accompanying cd is a collection of environmental sounds taken mainly from from insects in the bush land of NSW. The recordings have been processed and sequenced to form a rhythmic and textural backdrop for the live performers and includes crickets, cicadas, grasshoppers, beetles, frogs, several kilos of live maggots, unidentified earth tunnelling creatures, gumboots in mud and an exploding device for rural crop protection. Entomology was commissioned by the Seymour Group with generous financial assistance from the Performing Arts Board of the Australia Council.
solo parts included: Flute(Piccolo/Alto), Clarinet(Bass Clarinet), Violin, Cello, Percussion, Piano
