Bioni Samp from London makes electronic bee music. That's not bee-sides, but actual bee beats. In an astonishing (and brave) example of what can be done with DIY synths and a significant amount of protective clothing, he explains in this short, 60-second video how he goes about it. Using synthesizers he's made himself and other DIY equipment lets him design specialised setups to interpret the data and turn it into music.
"I record the bees in their hives, run that through my synths then extract rhythms from it. I use three notes - for worker, drone and queen bees respectively". He does this - amongst other reasons - to highlight the global drop in bee populations, which poses a risk to the environment.

We'll bee honest, we were a little relieved to see that this technique involves recording the bees rather than trying to get them to land on MIDI triggers or something. Still, it's an interesting way to create a buzz around your music. Let's hope he takes it further, and this unique setup doesn't remain forever in bee-ta. (Sorry).
