"The Fruit Fly's lament: what Katy did's not just Cricket(s)" - David Cooper Orton

Three bugs - fruit fly, katydids and crickets.
I sourced these from the Bug Bytes website: http://www.ars.usda.gov/sp2UserFiles/person/3559/soundlibrary.html

Although they have been quite radically changed in the process of composition, the ideas for the somewhat melancholy melodies were suggested by a snippette of sound from a male fruit fly which couldn't itself be used, but provided the inspiration for this piece, such as it is.
Much editing and ACIDification occurred, and quite a few liberties taken, including re-tuning of samples etc.

  another wonderful track by DCO - what a nice little melody and magical atmosphere ! for some reason this tune reminds me of 1) the movie Liquid Sky and 2) of the first Henry Cow album
