Echolocation definition: “Echolocating animals emit calls out to the environment and listen to the echoes of those calls that return from various objects near them. They use these echoes to locate and identify the objects. Echolocation is used for navigation and for foraging (or hunting) in various environments.” [Wikipedia]

Human echolocation: “Human echolocation is the ability of humans to detect objects in their environment by sensing echoes from those objects, by actively creating sounds: for example, by tapping their canes, lightly stomping their foot, or snapping their fingers” [Wikipedia]

“A stylistic cousin of “Fractals,” that Bruce calls “one of my musical combines.” He’s remembering the American artist and pop art instigator Robert Rauschenberg, who during the 1950s made famous hybrids of tactile painting and sculpture, where almost anything, assembled just so rightly, goes.”

“An old-time traditional song with an added “direction skillset” idea which is human echolocation – you’re leaving a situation that’s no good for you , and you’re able to do it with knowledge of the night sky and human echolocation skills. It’s a modern scientific addition to a very old-time song that I feel Ricky Skaggs could sing. It’s very traditional and I love that kind of music.”
