"Observing an ecological system and the act of listening to music have much in common; both reveal their subtleties over time as a reward for the attentive eye and ear rather than presenting themselves in a single instant, and they both require a sense of relationship of their parts to the whole. Sarah Peebles' Insect Groove is a set of sonic landscapes for the ear that is, in the words of The Wire, '? a rewarding interface between digital abstraction, group improvisation, 21st century program music, Zen performance and ecological manifesto.' The disc collects a series of works by Sarah Peebles and an A-list of collaborators from the experimental music community (British composer and text artists David Toop and the extended guitar work of Nilan Pererra) and the work of Jin Hi Kim and Ko Ishikawa, traditional musicians known world-wide for their commitment to bringing the sounds of their respective traditional Korean and Japanese court instruments into the new century. The eight tracks on Insect Groove combine Sarah's performance on the sho, an ancient Japanese mouth organ found in the Japanese gagaku orchestra, with her own Max patches that she uses to access clusters of natural and mechanical samples."
