In listening to cicadas, as well as other humming, clicking, and thrumming insects, Rothenberg considers the radical notion that we humans got our idea of rhythm, synchronization, and dance from the world of insect sounds that surrounded our species over the millions of years over which we evolved. He explores insect influences in classical and modern music, plays his saxophone with crickets and other insects, and confers with researchers and scientists nationwide, making a passionate case for the interconnectedness of species.
