Sounds of the Blackdown Hills set
to music by Charlie Hearnshaw
& Maxine Green

For recording, a flower attached to the mic attracted some hover flies while others preferred paper petals taped to the end of it.

We looped various buzzes to construct a drone somewhat reminiscent of a hurdy gurdy.
Sax solo heavily influenced by Nusrat Fatah Ali Kahn.

Our garden hover flies buzz tunefully in D and required no pitch processing.
