An order work for the internationally recognized Festival
for electronic music: phonotaktik02. In reference to the topic of the
Festival ('"tool") Thilges3 try to use the sound of 2000 field crickets
(gryllus campestri) as only source of sound to form a composition. The
sounds of the crickets (stridulations) are noted over microphones and worked
on by Synthesizers, strengthened over a quadrophonic PA. The use of the
cricket here is just as natural as hypernatural. In japan insects are used
as music producers since the 8 th century.
