Leif Brush and the Earth Philharmonic by Dave Helland NEW TIMES, December, 1974 Iowa City, Iowa--Someday Leif Brush will write a symphony, but now he is busy tuning a tree, perfecting the Insect Broadcasting System, and inventing other instruments to perform the symphony. The rough idea for his river harp is on paper: now he needs engineers to put his idea into blueprint form and roughly $500,000 to construct the instrument. His rain and draft monitors are perfected. These are all examples of what Brush calls terrain instruments, instruments played by the elements of nature. The music they make are the random, minute sounds of nature-water running down a tree, ants' footsteps, a leaf hiting a taut wire- electronically amplified and then recorded. Unlike his fellow professors at the University of Iowa's School of Art, who paint, sculpt or make prints in their indoor studios, Brush's studio is his yard and house. When the wind is strong, he monitors three steel stakes in the ground around a tree and several steel pins driven into the trunk, crotch, bark and limbs of the tree. By hooking one of the stakes or pins to a pre-amp, he can record the vibrations caused by wind buffeting the tree. Each is recorded separately, but his goal is to be able to hear them simultaneously. Soon, he'll be able to mix the recordings to bring out the most interesting sound taking place at any given moment. Five wires of different gauges strung between two trees serve as his cricket and cicada monitor. Insect noises cause the the wires to vibrate slightly, but when these vibrations are amplified electronically they can be recorded. While recording this monitor, he heard strange noises he couldn't account for until he noticed that ants were crawling across the wires of the monitor. Terrain Instruments, Eleanor Heartney, EAR Magazine Ra d i o V.8. N. 5, March 1884 ...The Terrain Instruments exist, like sculpture, in space, but mirror sound which is less familiar and less connotative than that of a violin or piano. Current sound works employ use of microprocessors. and the listener/viewer of my radio-performances is asked to use new ways of perceiving this traditional, and artistic, source, the natural environment. ...Despite the unconventional nature of Brush's almost totally non-visual are (there are plans to convert aural information into visual images), it is closely tied to traditional notions of the link between art and nature. He is a populist and probably the most revolutionary aspect of his works is his transfer of control of his art from the artist to its audience. ... http://www.d.umn.edu/~lbrush/U%20O%20Iowa%20Faculty.pdf http://www.d.umn.edu/!lbrush/EAR1984.pdf http://www.sial.rmit.edu.au/Projects/City_Sounds+Tuning_of_the_World.php

Guided by media-wiki linkages, contributing members could include realtime challenges which enlist community participation to my projected 2015 Rhizome proposal by (a) identifying, sorting, defining, and the sharing of overall project outcomes, comprehending these and, eventually assembling Nano-based technologies within a selected terrain-site, and would be capable of, and eventually collect and collate the sought audible-results results - at any given time and space; and, these realtime orchestral responses would come from prehistoric-old, naturally-occurring terrestrial sounds of nature. These attained through the listening-learning processes, and will inform and guide us toward an eventual assembling of these; the objective being to establsih an interactive procedure affecting all 2-way monitorings of global's fluxing whole's phenomena ( #2 ref/note) Starting from scratch, our aural and visual (video) collations would, ephemerally mirror, and eventualually sustain generational inputs and outputs globally. (b) Requisites for each nodal site to be successful, local, community, and potentially global nodal sites will require upgradable computer-wide useages and comprehensibe Nano-based-technologies and hardware. Though expandable, this list includes nano-based electronics: software, coding, debugging, processors' tweeks to setups/testing/checking out of RF transceivers, antennas, repeater stations, modulated laser throughput alignments, and multiplexing/demultiplexing handshakes and compatibilities for its neighborhood to neighborhood to get underway. Input monitoring's backbone will require: (c) NIST/GPS-syncing, (d) Lat/Long positions( #3 ref/note),(e) inputing, mutlplexing all at-the-moment sensing collections, (f)- outputing these moments-in-time-and-space (#4 ref/note), demultiplexing all scans of Global's realtime waveforms (#5 ref/note), (g) that the resultant syncd-collations - potentialy from all cardinal points- are to be in realtime, momentarily mirroring prehistoric terrestrial "sound tracks." At home, via their handhelds, each participant is asked to sync their specific data re emerging whole - of this time and space- to this emerging whole,
Summary, Synchronicity assured - by having used 2-ways: solar-powered electronics, the net-contrutors' input/output and inter-connecting hardware/software handshakes will have several options as to how to output there packets; suitable solar power appliances, have utilized FM transmitters from the site-to-computer-to internet, etc, RF-reflecting dishes, discarded home satellite dishes, FM transmissions: wifi or lifi laser, FM transceivers, and, hardware and appropriate software apps. Having been perceived, received, acted upon by all contributors from neighborhood to neighborhood, these ephemeral "constructs" (#6 ref/note) can reaffirm the "naturally" possession of ancient sounding sources which have been otherwise drowned out.

Thank you so much for dinner last week!Inbox x
Oct 2 (2 days ago)
Dear Gloria and Leif, Thanks again for the lovely group dinner at Zeitgeist last week. It was wonderful to meet Doug Kahn *, who is a fascinating guy. It doesn't surprise me that he would find his way to our local genius, Leif! It was fun to catch up with everyone and talk about other-worldly things too.
I'm afraid I was coming down with a cold that night, and I dearly hope I didn't pass it to either of you. It's going around UMD now, and both Rob Wititg and I have been pretty under the weather this week. I hope you are well, and enjoying the sunny fall days...Gloria luxuriating in making art without all the niggling interruptions of teaching and committee work.
Now I have a date on my calendar for Leif to visit my Digital Arts: Interactive Media class. Let me know if this still works for you Leif...
Monday November 25 at 5pm in ABAnderson room 335. We can discuss what you would like my students to view or read about your work before you visit. re http://weblackwhole.net
* "Earth Sound Earth Signal" is out now ,and Doug's next book is due out in fall of 2014: Title "Media Trees," and Leif will be in chapter 2.
