☼ Ex Mirror - Trans-Species Action

Actually, the name used to be Exterior Mirror. It was shortened for no meaningful reason other than just being tired of writing the whole thing out all the time. Ex Mirror is 100% Claude Willey from Chicago, but others have contribute from time to time. Dr. Dan Nichols is responsible for the building of insect recording devices, rotating microphones, transmitters used in live performance and other electronic gadgets. Other instruments and gizmos used on “Trans-Species Action” were: toy flutes, harmonicas, various electronic gadgets, synthesizers (Roland Juno 6, Prophet 600) samplers (Akai S950, Akai S612, various pedal samplers) Digitech and Boss digital delays, Lexicon Vortex, ART Multiverb 3, various distortion units, analogue tape, digital tape, contact microphones, large chunks of wood, Space Phones, glasses, metal wire, and U.S. currency.
Most of the sounds used on “Trans-Species Action” where derived from insect recordings and automotive traffic pattern field recordings from Illinois and Delaware, which were researched by Willey. The project was all about creating a dialogue with locusts, crickets, and katydids. He was trying to create a language using human patterns (i.e. the car) and train pulses created by the male insect. Willey studied the use of ultrsonic sounds created by the ant and the cabbage moth as well. (jeez! ;)
