Šis „Unarcheology radio“ grojaraštis pateikia įsivaizduojamą garsovaizdį, kuris sudarytas iš svirplių, cikadų ir laumžirgių garsų iš viso pasaulio, kartu su šikšnosparnių ultragarsu, čia perkeltu į girdimus dažnius. Montažo pagalba randasi nelogiška garsų ekosistema, kurios elementai paprastai yra labai toli vieni nuo kitų ir nuo mūsų tiek geografiniame žemėlapyje, tiek garso spektre.

UNARCHEOLOGY RADIO #2

This ‘Unarcheology radio’ mix presents an imaginary soundscape made of sounds of crickets, cicadas and dragonflies from all over the world, coexisting with ultrasounds from bats, here transposed to audible frequencies. From the montage emerges an illogical ecosystem of sounds normally found very distant from each other and from us, both on a geographic map and on the sound spectrum.
