This is an experimental performance for one of my university courses named "playful interface". The core goal of this course is to design and build a musical instrument by combining an object of one's choice and electronic components and circuits. At the end of the semester, students play with their instruments in the form of a concert. Each year, at a different location. This year was in Florentine
Our group concept was to demonstrate the climate change crisis and the changes that are happening in the Environment. We had three different instruments, each one built with each of us, but conceptually connected.
I built an instrument from Pothos plant with which I could make sound by touching disparate leaves of that plant. One other instrument was based on crushing the ice and the other based on polluting the water. The performance started with me, playing with my instrument and producing ambient and chilling sounds, and after a few minutes, it was followed by noises from crushing the ice which was disturbing the chilling sounds of the plants. And after that, the performance reached its peak by adding another form of noise from polluting the water.
