Native Instrument is a Berlin based sound collaboration bringing together the field-recordings archive of Felicity Mangan and the abstract vocabulary of Stine Janvin Motland.
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.
Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi and pressed at Pallas in a first edition of 500 copies.

I saw the installation in Berlin and stayed for 30 Minutes in that room. I discovered it randomly and it was clear that I had to support the artist. To rest there between the bowls and Chrystals surrounded by this hydro-soundtrack was deeply moving and meditative. Thank you. alepheins
