OLD WASP (IN THE FALL), by LISA SCHONBERG
From the series “Text Scores for Getting to Know Invertebrates”
Lisa Schonberg is a composer and percussionist creating sound works based on ecological research. Informed by her background in entomology, she is interested how sound work can reveal and challenge assumptions about insect sound-worlds and insect agency. She has been collaborating with Brazilian entomologists on ATTA (Amplifying the Tropical Ants), a project investigating ant bioacoustics in the Amazon. Other recent work includes work on old-growth forests in Oregon and endangered Hawaiian bees. She is pursuing her PhD in Electronic Arts at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
