Audio Buzz

May 15, 2007

I mentioned a little while back that I got an e-mail from a local artist who wanted to audio record my bees for some music he was working on. Well, he and his friend Tad came by on Saturday and did just that. He used both a standard looking microphone standing on top of the hive and we tried lowering a microphone down into the hive, then closing it up.

I have to admit I intentionally agitated the bees some in the hopes they would be noisier. I’m pretty sure that violates some sort of journalistic ethic.

Photos of experiment below. Can’t wait to hear how it turns out.
