BROOD X: ’04 ’21
The above image was taken, May 16, 2021, underneath a magnolia tree, BROOD X 17-year (Great Eastern Brood) cicada in the final stage of molting prior to hardening of the new exoskeleton. The sounds and photographs of the 17-year cicada from 2004 are based on locations from the areas of Catonsville, Arbutus, and the Patapsco State Park system, Maryland, USA. Over the next few weeks around mid-May, I will begin posting sounds and various media from the offspring of the 2004 cicada bloom. This will include short cicada-based sonic interactions including various forms of media experiments that may include other artists from around the globe.
