Bioni Samp – “Electronic Journey To Avebury” – 20 minutes, 2013

A remediation of a rare Super 8 film, A Journey to Avebury (1971), by acclaimed English film director Derek Jarman.

Avebury is a Neolithic henge monument containing three stone circles, located around the village of Avebury in Wiltshire, UK. Avebury contains the largest stone circle in Europe and is one  of  the best known prehistoric sites in Britain. The ‘Journey To Avebury’ part of the title comes from a rare Super 8 film, A Journey to Avebury (1971), by the acclaimed English film director Derek Jarman (1942-1994), documenting a summer visit to the stone circles in the early 1970s. Electronic Journey To Avebury retreads this path forty years later, in winter. Through processed video and sonification of electromagnetic fields, it reveals a hidden message among the stones.

To make the video and audio for ‘Electronic Journey To Avebury’, I went to Avebury stone circles with my Binaural Beeframe EMF Detector (2012), Hive Tool Resonance Detector (2012) and video camera. I was hoping to hear something interesting. I was wondering if the stones were perhaps magnetic or had ley-lines between them which could be followed. Readings of electromagnetic radiation and transmitted resonance were recorded from and around the stones, forming part of the soundtrack. The soundtrack was then mixed with my Hive Synthesiser and other home-made instruments. My Hive Synthesiser attempts to create a symbiotic frequency relationship, like those between pollination and nectar exchanges, or between beekeeper and bees.

In each honey bee colony there are three types of bee: drone, worker and queen bees. Each of these have their own individual frequencies in the following ranges: low – 200 Hz or less, mid – 200-400 Hz, and high – 400+ Hz, just like the earth has its own special frequency of approximately 9 Hz. Bee frequencies are created by modular oscillators sensing light. Electronic bees are carefully guided over the Hive Synthesiser interface to electronic flowers. Numerology of bees and beehive habitat patterns, hive logs and cycles are used as circuit starting points. Known for its calming effect upon the beehive colony, The Electronic Beesmoker acts as a modified breath controller.

The aim of this project was to learn more about bee frequencies and to create a work that would raise awareness about bees and their increasingly fragile ecosystem.

having to mark a transition, to call upon a rite of passage

to set a point to grow further from there

leaving this behind and expose

some of its key moments,

of a time

mostly

in dispear

oblivious to this hurting

a will arose to battle this

to dance to this

and manifest a physical existence to these very times and feelings in metaphors

only a grasp of its full content can be sourced from my head alone

the moving image monuments describe the circumstance and condition

let to read breath and eye s focus, expression on the face and mannerism

in retrospective

in this for what I was I m glad I can re-access. share to re- access. say its ending.

cleansing for the paths ahead to be taken with a lightness close to innocence

one knows what is what and its time to give the times a last prayer a last call for showcase

the first to be fair

but the last

in relevance

with aknowledgments to all involved

to all once breathing besides me. knowing that eyes can meet unconditionally

in a french world and beyond
