Often referred to as insect techno, Native Instrument’s music is constructed using electronic and vocal adaptations of wildlife audio recordings originating mainly from the Australian and North European fauna; mixing the natural rhythms of animal calls with digital effects and vocal imitations, Native Instrument enlightens a sonic ambiguity between rural nature, electronics, and the human voice. With their debut release Camo, Native Instrument presents their true artificial nature; sound collages moving between tropical ambience, club inspired bug beats and amphibian trance.
With Deep Frog we could be listening to a plainchant chorus of crickets or a drone race, both egged on by a flock of birds, whilst Vögel Unserer Heimat opens to a racket of running water whooping macaques and busied insectoid pulses building to a purposeful techno march.
Waldfest follows in pursuit of a more crepuscular scene threading Donato Dozzy-esque pulses thru an intensely detailed pastoral scene of chattering dolphins and panicked cicadas - we’ve no idea what they’re doing together on the Wald, either - before Emutional Flutes rotates a crackly narration from a nature documentary amid a call centre of nattering feathered creatures, striking a very odd and disorienting balance of stasis and psychotomimetic repetition maybe best termed as amphibian trance.
