Every 17 years the Brood X Cicadas emerge from their long slumber. They climb out of the ground, shed their shells, grow wings and take to the skies. A few days later the chorus of Cicadas begins. There is no sound quite like it at all.
This instrument is comprised of 4 different patches of sampled Cicadas. A lead, a bass, an arp and a robotic sounding cicada. Since we only get to experience this once every 4 years I wanted to try and capture it and do something fun with it.

Great, here in Portugal, they are out in force, and I’ve been recording them on my iPhone. I need to up my game 😉 love the sounds you’ve got. I was thinking of doing something to the tempo of the cicada – it’ll be interesting.
