The New Pangaea

Concert in Seili Church, 12-13 August 2022

The New Pangaea is an interspecies cantata inspired by the myriad interactions between humans and plants on the island of Seili. Plants settled on the island long before humans, yet attitudes towards differ- ent plant species have varied greatly throughout the short period of human presence. The cantata introduces twenty plants, which represent diverse modes of migration to, as well as disappearance from, the island. The audio material played in the concert has been collected in Seili either with microphones or by transforming the electrical conductivity of the plants into sounds audible to the human ear.
