i heard the cicadas for the first time this morning. it's pretty strange.

i'm used to the bigger 1-year ones which are more buzzy sounding and not
as high pitched. those sound more like electricity.

these sound sort of like a theremin played through mild distortion.
now there's something i haven't tried yet... maybe for the next PLOJ?

anyone got a theremin? c'mon...

i wonder if you could build a bass theremin... gotta make the antennas
less sensitive to proximity...

or i could just trap cicadas and play them... and give them to amy when
they die, apparently.
