The Greenhouse Phenomenon is a sound inquiry into the pulse and life signals of plants, made audible to the audience to show how much activity there is within every weed. The Band of Weeds’ live sound performance is presented at the Stavanger Art Museum during the SCB opening weekend (October 17-20, 2019). Afterwards, the work will be integrated in the form of a sound installation located along the Mosvannet park throughout the whole biennial period.

The Greenhouse Phenomenon has been commissioned by Screen City Biennial and will be premiered during the upcoming edition Ecologies - lost, found and continued.

BIO

The Band of Weeds was founded as a conceptual band in 2015. In 2017, the founders Kalle Hamm and Dzamil Kamanger began releasing LPs and performing live acts. The first album, Other-Than-Human, was released in autumn 2017 and the EP Waiting for the Extinction :-( in spring of 2019. The current members of the band are Olli Aarni, Lauri Ainala, Kalle Hamm, Hermanni Keko and the featured plants, depending on the project. All the sound material is recorded from the plants using the method developed by the Soviet botanist Ivan Gunar. Ionised liquid is run through the plant tissues and the changes in their electro-magnetic field can then be converted to the sound range audible to the human ear.
