In August, Michael Prior and I travelled through the
North Island of New Zealand and recorded sounds
with hydrophones in bodies of water that we found.
The crabs and starfish and oysters in the rockpools at
Long Bay made crackles and pops and squeaks.
The dripping roofs and cave puddles at Tongaporutu
made natural techno music. We thought some algae in
the dank pond near Huntly might say something,
but they did not.
