Techno musician Pantha Du Prince (aka Hendrik Weber) lends a musical voice to tree life with this audiovisual piece, combining modified acoustic bodies of sound, instruments and electronics.
With the help of sound experiments, Berlin-based techno composer Pantha Du Prince (Hendrik Weber) explores the communication of trees and translates it into otherworldly electronic music. In 2018, he was packing out major music venues around Europe.
The instruments for this project have been partly handmade by the artist himself, who wanted to explore the sound characteristics of different woods through intensive studies of the material. He is supported by a percussion ensemble consisting of Håkon Stene and Bendik Hovik Kjeldsberg, who already participated in his last project The Bell Laboratory, and Manuel Chittka, drummer with the German band Messer. The pulsating electronica on his new album The Triad whirls into a complex whole that reveals new depths every time you replay it.
My first idea about trees was that they map out space with their communication. Trees remain in one spot, but they interact over vast distances through mycorrhizal networks. They don’t have human knowledge of technology but they still manage to create their own cooperative space and form vast conscious networks within this space. Henrik Weber
