The Insect is a very small instrument, both disarmingly simple and unexpectedly versatile. Each Insect consists of a short piece of small-diameter metal pipe (through which compressed air comes in) covered with a latex membrane held tightly by fixed clamps. A second membrane may sometimes be knotted around the end piece like a cord, at the discretion of the performer, by doing so altering the way the first membrane is vibrating.
