Ideally, I would like my Echolocation sound installation to not only be musically interesting, but also ‘readable’ in terms of being able to know what the bats are doing, simply by listening.  This is actually quite a challenge!

In order to achieve this I will have to have some sort of correlation between the bat detectors picking up the sounds and the sounds used in the composition itself.  I am thinking that, for example, I might be able to achieve this through careful use of spatialisation (to refer to the locations of the actual bat detectors) as well as through the use of various threshold detectors (to respond to the variance in speed and volume of the different bat species’ calls).
