'Age of Insects' is the result of a series of visits made by Mark and Laura to Stephen’s studio in Virginia between May 2009 and January 2010. The three improvised around common interests in analog electronics and digital manipulation, field recordings and instrumental performance practice. These recordings presented here feature only minimal editing and post-production, with a primary intent of capturing shared moments of listening and response. The titles refer to extinct insects—the imagined hum and flutter of their calls, flight and communication.
Reminded of the movings about of tiny autonomous creatures. Waiting for a clearing, turning around, carrying objects or stopping for whatever reason. Always busy. Maybe an ant colony. Zoom way out to a high rise, look down and see it again. Richard Erickson
Our bodies are thrown into the void, in a dimension between dimensions where the laws of physics don't apply.
Space and time bend, unfold, stretch and collapse endlessly ; taking advantage of this situation, we catch hints of broken transmissions and shattered fragments of time, erratically drifting in this hallucinatory area.
Even if the artist's collaboration still shines the most in their previous Aurora Liminalis, Divertissement offers an enjoyable falsely still life out of this world. Dotflac
