“Truce” by Robin Meier and Ali Momeni

Using the natural phenomena of wingbeat frequency matching for mate selection in mosquitoes, “Truce” uses electronics to analyze and simulate a mate.  The result is a harmonized song between insect and machine.

A record player is re-purposed to identify and play the rings of a tree.


Both setups use and modify existing organic, biological materials for sound production.  The work “Truce” actually has the additional step of stimulating a natural occurrence on cue by understanding biology.  The mosquitoes’ instinct is a key factor in the sound making.
