Justin Buckley-Berlin, Germany [save-the-pollinators] by Justin Buckley published on 2012/10/29 09:02:14 +0000 Titled 'Bees in the Borage' - contributed to SAVE the POLLINATORS: "a collaborative musical project focused on the plight of both the little brown bats and honeybees". More info at: http://www.savethepollinators.org Backstory: In 2011 I co-founded a small community vegetable garden, where a group of us learn how to garden and share the harvest. This season, a beekeeper offered to set up a hive, and we gladly took the offer. This piece consists of three segments of a recording I took on 22 June 2012 at our garden in Berlin here: http://goo.gl/maps/E0xKr. Google Maps must have recently updated their satellite photos, because our new pond, some vegetable beds, and our shed is visible from the link. At that time we had a bed full of Borage in bloom, and on that day there were many bees amongst the Borage. I stood my Sony PCM-M10 in the middle of the bed, hit record, and left it for a while. I slowly faded the 3 best recording segments together, so there's some overlap. I EQed out some low level hums, and a bit of the high end, but otherwise unedited.
