Summer, heat. The crickets make their explicit noise. Often you only become aware of it, when they suddenly stop making their sound. The whole day long this monotonous sound makes up the background noise of all activities here in the South of France. They do not stop “singing“ until the moment of their death, that´s what people say. In fact they do not really sing, it´s rather percussion what they do, letting body parts dart over their own resonating body. How can a beast so small create such an enormous sound? As long as they live, they sound off but at some stage they´ll sit quiet and will never sing again. Other very lively, persistent and effective beings turn up and take over.
