TREOW by Akama

Bee Strings By Scarfe
An installation using violins to evoke the sound of bumblebees in flight; exploring the tiny, rapid movements of bee wings with layered recordings of bowed strings. The pitch of a bee's sound relates to the size of its body and the speed of its wing movements. Natural Philosopher Robert Hooke proposed tuning violin strings to the sound of bees in order to grasp the frequency of their wingbeats. Following his logic, if we know the rate at which musical strings vibrate, we can infer that a bee sounding a G♯ beats it's wings just over 200 times per second.
