David Rothenberg's "Bug Music" is a highly readable and eccentric investigation into an aspect of nature too easily taken for granted. There is a philosophical nature to Rothenberg’s writing--he is a professor of both music and philosophy—but don’t let that scare you. He stays grounded in the science of natural musicality. Delving deeply into the sounds of cicadas, crickets and katydids, Rothenberg is not afraid to suddenly go big-picture on his readers. "Bug Music" is ultimately a lot of fun and if you don’t share Rothenberg’s enthusiasm for the intricate connections between bug sounds and human music, you will by the end.
