Robertina Šebjanič & Maja Smrekar: Zvočne invazije / Sound Invasions

Professional associate and co-design of sound: Miha Tomšič
Lecturer: Nejc Jogan, PhD
Design: Andrej Strehovec
Ida Hiršenfelder, Saša Spačal

1. Plant-sound performance (Robertina Šebjanič, Maja Smrekar, Miha Tomšič)

Using a DIY system that interprets some levels of the plants' existence, we will present a live creation of sound and image, generated by locally growing but non-native invasive plant species. Electromagnetic current, connected to the plants and the software (Pure Data, SuperCollider and Resolume), will translate data into sound, transforming the invasive garden into a noisy electrical circuit of synthetic samples of organic liveness, the essence of which, both in nature and technology, is based on variants inside the origin of constantly equal repetition.  

2. Bio-lecture (Nejc Jogan, PhD)

The performance will be followed by a lecture on the global and local aspects of hybridizations, i.e. the changing mechanisms of natural selection, which often induce changes of indigenous plants inside ecosystems, thereby influencing the potential of their ecological niches, which in turn causes the outset of the sixth great species extinction on Earth.

3. Invasive dinner: If you can ́t beat them – EAT THEM!

You will be served dinner in the form of some of the most wide-spread non-native invasive plant species from the Maribor Pohorje mountain ridge: policeman's helmet (Impatiens glandulifera), Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica), Canadian goldenrod (Solidago canadensis), and some other invasive species representatives from these parts. While you discuss the various local and global aspects of non-native invasive plant species with the project team, you will have a chance to experience the invasive phenomenon also on the gourmet level.
