    aether: musick for moths – uncertain 

    an album devoted to moths in an ambient/drone/noisy/abstract sort of way. you will need a good hour so you can listen to its entirety in one sitting. it really is the only way. it is quite enjoyable to listen to as through the static movement it seems imagery can be conceived and thus the relating of moths to the music easier. i am not a huge fan of ambient stuff but this is good. here is the album.

    flutter – ven voisey 

    Ven Voisey is a multi-disciplinary artist who focuses on sound art and conceptual art, primarily creating installations. First of all, the conceptions of the moth are important here, without which we would not understand this. The dead or false moths behind the light fixture panels, circling lightbulbs and creating shadows here allude to this. The amplified hum of the light and the ‘one-note requiem’ point us toward the repetitive/redundant activity of moths near a light source. From a distance, such as a human distance from a light source, this activity can only be seen as a hum or a drone. However, if we expand the metaphor to humans toward light for instance, which makes sense regarding the immersive environment of the installation, the violinist and the single light drawing us into the shadow room, we can carry that idea over. That our activities would also produce a hum from a distance, becoming something insignificant yet meaningful for those within it. Sorry, it turned somewhat nihilistic. Here’s Voisey’s blog.

    appleworm – satanstompingcaterpillars 

    before black moth super rainbow became black moth super rainbow they were satanstompingcaterpillars. i think that the album this song is on (the autumn kaleidoscope got changed) got released under both aliases but more formally as bmsr in 2009. in other words the caterpillar metamorphosed into a moth though maybe they’re missing the middle part – pupa please.

    the apple worm is not really a worm but the caterpillar of the codling moth (cydia pomonella of the tortricidae family) which, judging by the name of the family it is under, sounds bad. and it is –  a fairly widespread and serious pest even here in new zealand. but there are some good controls out and about. the better ones seem to not be synthetic/chemical sprays but alternative/organic forms of control such as pheromone disruption so that they get confused and do not mate. there is also introducing its nemesis – the wasp – to the situation. it lays eggs in the moths’ eggs. gross but works apparently.  and introduction of viruses which attack only the codling and other things which sound scary. so everything is somewhat under control despite having to kind of impose ourselves within these parts of the eco-system quite dramatically. anyway, listen to the track and click here.
