Bio-electric Radio – radio broadcast through climbing vine antennas. The sound is made up of recordings of individual bees (honey bees, bumble bees, miners, leaf-cutters, and unidentified varieties) mixed with tones and sound artifacts from bio-electric synthesizer modules (modules that use parts of the plant within their circuitry). The virtual bees inhabit the radio-waves like ghosts that sing along with the sounds of the plants themselves. The piece will be broadcast through the branches of the climbing hydrangea in front of my house. A receiver, wired into the same plant using bio-electronic circuitry, will collect the sounds and stream them to the net on NoiseartRadio.
