STILLWATER, Minn. - In the growing annals of invasive species, the fingernail-size zebra mussel hardly seems as fearsome as others that have recently made headlines - the bighead carp that have been leaping onto fishing boats in the Mississippi River, the "Frankenfish" snakehead that ate a Maryland pond. But what the zebra mussel lacks in style, it makes up for in destructive ability: Tiny but prolific, they can quickly take over a body of water, clogging power plant intake pipes, stealing food and oxygen from other species and even suffocating the native mussels that they attach themselves to and eventually encrust.

As career paths go, the one taken by Stephen St.Croix has been a murky, quirky, meandering trail - a long, strange trip with only one constant: Noise. Whether it was trying to make his electric guitar louder than anybody else's as a rock musician, defuzzing the audio for the re-release of The Wizard of Oz as a sound engineer, or enhancing the covertly recorded mumblings of terrorists and drug dealers as a manufacturer of audio surveillance aids, the Baltimore native's life - at least the parts he can talk about publicly - has been all about sound.

Well before dawn, we push away from shore and -- just as travelers on North American rivers have done for centuries -- slip paddles into the water and turn our canoes downstream.Flickering silver from a quarter-moon ripples the river surface, a sheen of light to show the occasional V-wave behind rocks. In the velvet darkness we are attuned to small sounds -- paddle clunks, current riding over rocks. Gradually, gray light filters through a heavy mist, the stars dim and sunrise begins.Canoes link us to the history of this continent as no other craft can. American Indians made canoes everywhere there was water to navigate, from 60-foot cedar dugouts in the Northwest to the elegant birchbark canoes of Maine's North Woods.
