Black box teater 2019 ( waiting for the sun)

A performative installation for scanned scores of patterns from bark beetles found on trees in the polish forest Bialowieza. The scores are played by dismantled accordion-reeds, triggered by external air from a set of programmed mechanically run ventilation-fans and synths. The interpretation of the insect-patterns has become the material for a composition that seeks to simulate pop music love ballads from the early 90ties referencing Celine Dion and Robbie Williams. In tracing the love song the reading of these patterns aims to depict the story of a wounded forest.
