Evelyn Saylor and Rebecca Lane use their voices, flute, high organ pipes, live electronic processing and four-channel spatialization to project the hypothetical language of imagined creatures. Inspired by such terrestrial examples as the high-pitched microtonal pings of the Australian bellbirds, the bioluminescence of anglerfish, and the wing-beating frequencies of bees, they seek to depict the sounds, interactions, and communication patterns of imagined sci-fi species. Their musical vocabulary includes combination and difference tones, otoacoustic emissions, and their relationship to ratio-based microtonal tunings.
