Natural Selection

Premiered at Música Viva Festival in Portugal (17th – 24th Sept 2005)

Natural Selection is an installation designed to exhibit emergence through a carefully selected natively sonic emergent environment based on the frog ecology of mate selection within a frog chorus. Special consideration is given in the design of this installation to the notion that the phenomenon of emergence is manifest in the dynamic listening system of a perceiver embodied within such an environment.
