All music is produced with the sounds or imitation of animals; often played with other artists and producers whose work features concepts of the same nature.

Hand-built mini Speaker – In order to mimic and explore how insects’ amplify their call through contact with the membrane of flora, I play back animal sound through a simple hand built mechanism – Coil, magnet, tiny amp and resonating displaced and found objects.

C.E.S vs. Felicity Mangan (Plants and Animals)

mimic insects

C.E,S.  vs. Felicity Mangan, (Plants and Animalia) brings together both artists personal investigation into the sound phenomena produced by plants and animals – through the combination of c.e.s. submerged sonification of plant biochemistry, deploying self-built synthesizers, to capture and sonify of the chemical composition of plants. Mangan explores the timbre and forms of found and self-recorded animal voices while mimicking biophonic patterns to create minimal quasi-bioacoustic environments, utilizing a sampler and sequencer. Together they create electro-acoustic compositions grafting field recordings, live and pre-recorded drones and pulses produced by remnants of plant biochemistry subterranean together with modified animal voices embedded in a bioacoustic sphere of synthetic and oscillating hybrids.
