    I don't know how to make psytrance, but meanwhile I keep a mental note of noises made by kitchen utensils and farm machinery etc that I would so put in a track :ph34r:

    Last night we happened to watch a programme about a zoologist investigating electric eels in the Amazon. So here is my idea:

    an electric eel orchestra

    This guy was catching a mixed bag of eels then sorting them into buckets of water on his dug-out canoe. He had this metal stick attached to some kind of voltmeter that gave an audible signal. By sticking the probe in the bucket he could hear which species he'd caught. Each species gives out a different frequency, so he was actually "playing" buckets of eels on a boat (well in my mind anyway :Wink3: ). I like that. Would be a wicked stage act at the SEOne...... anyone up for it?

    Cool. I like that idea.
    Do moles make any particular identifiable sounds that could be sampled...
    kind of like a mole orchestra?! :Wink3:

    One of the best sounds I've heard is a really long fence made of straight steel wire, stretched very very tight. You hit it with a stick (or summit) and it make an excellent "PIONG... piong... piong" sound (it echoes back and forth along the wire!).

    Cool! Now let's string electric eels above your fence on fishing lines and record the sound as each one PIONGs on the fence? We have a track in the making..... (where is Colin OOD when you need him?).

    Re Moles, I have severe doubts they exist. Mole-hills definitely do, but have you ever seen a real mole? I am just a figment of Koxbox's imagination :Wink3:

    that would be telling
    Warp did a thing with the royal symphony orchestra and the lovely Mira Calix played her set using insect noise.
