In his recent project “Conference of Trees”, Hendrik Weber aka Pantha du Prince explores communication between trees. Scientists have increasingly been confirming something that countless stories across cultures have described for millennia: trees can exchange information amongst themselves, even across long distances. Pantha du Prince turns this cellular “conversation” into an artistic work that allows a sensual entry into this secretive phenomenon and combines music, visual poetry and speculative science. It also reaffirms his reputation as an extraordinary producer who, with his exceptional feeling for harmonies, manages to blend avant-garde music with electronic club sounds. In this case, the instruments were also partly made by the artist’s own hands and emerged from his intense interest in materials and a desire to determine the sound characteristics of various kinds of wood.
