CONFERENCE OF TREES – 31.08.19 HAMBURG – ELBPHILHARMONIE
Tickets: https://bit.ly/2vE9s2b Now!
With the help of sound experiments, Pantha Du Prince explores the communication of trees and translates them into music. The instruments for this are partly handmade by the artist himself, who wanted to find out something about 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 ensemble project The Bell Laboratory, and Manuel Chittka, drummer of the German band Messer.
Jazz musician Friedrich Paravicini, who has already worked on Tocotronic’s last No. 1 album, also participated in the arrangements.
In collaboration with a light designer, a video artist and a costume designer, a spectacular stage setting is created, giving space to Weber’s interdisciplinary approach. The project is being co-produced with the International Summer Festival at Kampnagel, the Barbican in London, the Kammerspiele in Munich and the Schauspielhaus Bochum. The world premiere took place on 13 August 2018 at Kampnagel.
