Notes

Recorded at Het Apollohuis, August 1999.

"Before leaving Mexico City I bought 200 jumping beans and immediately after our return to Eindhoven I started to experiment with them. In the past I've worked often with animals, with birds, crickets and goats. I also use sensors, timers, solenoids, motors, galvano-meters, solar cells and oscillators to produce sounds. … Jumping beans are magical living creatures. I worked with them for a couple of weeks, tried out various recording modes and different effects. The final selection on this CD is rather straightforward. There are four different pieces. For each recording I put 16 jumping beans in 8 containers. Clothes-pins glued on piezo discs were used as contact mikes on each of the containers, which were placed on a sheet of soft foam plastic. The signals on the DAT recordings were mixed on Mackie mixer 1202 ULZ. The beans were activated by a halogen lamp over the table."

1 - The beans are jumping in 8 containers, bowls and baskets made of various materials: reed, drumhead, bronze, plastic, enamelled iron, tin, aluminum and wood. The recording starts with the adjustment of the volumes of the various pick-ups.

2 - The beans are recorded in the same setting as in the previous piece. The recording is made without electronic manipulation or human intervention.

3 - The beans are recorded in the same setting as in the previous piece. In this piece I allowed myself to vary the volumes of the pick ups and the overall volume.

4 - The beans are jumping in 8 wineglasses of different shape and size. The recording is made without electronic manipulation or human intervention.
