Notes on Jitterbug, Annea Lockwood, 2007:

“For two or more musicians and six channels of prerecorded sound

In Jitterbug, the musicians are interpreting photographs of rocks taken for this project by Gwen Deely, as graphic scores; these are intricate in their patterns and color shifts and I found them in a creek bed, up in the Montana Rockies. A pre-recorded surround-sound score draws on insect sounds: aquatic insects which I recorded in the small lakes and backwaters of the Flathead Valley, Montana using Maggi Payne’s hydrophone; and ‘air’ insects made available by Lang Elliott, of the NatureSound Studio. A curious aspect of the underwater recordings was that these strong sound signals were being created by beetles and other microscopic insects which were always invisible to me, although the water was clear and often shallow.

Deep tones from bowed gongs and a piano, performed by Gustavo Aguilar, William Winant and Joseph Kubera infiltrate this insect world. Jitterbug was commissioned by the Merce Cunningham Dance Company in 2006 for the dance eyeSpace.”

Born in New Zealand in 1939 and living in the US since 1973, Annea Lockwood is known for her explorations of the rich world of natural acoustic sounds and environments, in works ranging from sound art and installations, through text-sound and performance art to concert music. Her music has been presented in many venues and festivals, including the 2016 Tectonics/BBC Festival, Glasgow, the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, the Tactile Paths 2017 festival, Berlin, Issue Project Room, Brooklyn and the Israeli Center for the Digital Arts, Holon.
Recent projects include In Our Name, a collaboration with Thomas Buckner based on poems by prisoners in Guantánamo; Water and Memory, composed for the Holon Scratch Orchestra, Israel; Wild Energy, in collaboration with Bob Bielecki — a site-specific installation focused on geophysical, atmospheric and mammalian infra and ultra sound sources. She was a recipient of the 2007 Henry Cowell Award. Her music has been issued on CD, vinyl and online on the Lovely Music, Black Truffle, New World, Ambitus, 3Leaves, EM and other labels. annealockwood.com
