"Midnight at the Oasis"
A time compression from sunset to sunrise in South Africa's Kalahari desert, this piece features the dense and harmonic mosaic of delicate animal rhythms recorded in this remote habitat. "Midnight at the Oasis" was first performed at the Marquee in Parliament Street, York, on 13th September 2007 as part of Sight Sonic's contribution to the BA Festival of Science.
The Kalahari desert is a vast and open space where most of the wildlife is nocturnal. After sunset the dunes, grasses and thorn bushes are patrolled by an emerging alien empire - the insects. The recording is of an unseen soundscape from this beautiful and hostile environment.

"The Bee Symphony"
The project was originally conceived by Chris Watson for "Pestival" in 2009 to explore the vocal harmonies between humans and honey bees in a unique choral collaboration, around and within the hives of an English country garden.
Recorded live at The Rymer Auditorium, Music Research Centre, University of York, England on December 17th 2010, using a Soundfield SPS200 microphone recorded onto an Edirol R4 (surround version), and 2 x Neumann U87 microphones via Grace Microphone Preamplifiers, recorded onto an Edirol R44 (stereo version).
Composed and arranged by Marcus Davidson using recordings made by Chris Watson & Mike Harding, and diffused through a 4.1 Genelec system by Chris Watson.
