In a sound installation and concerts, Elpappelpapp deals with the trembling poplar as an acoustic leitmotif: Christina Ert-Shirley and Paul Lubitz create a sound installation that deals with the unmistakable tonal “trembling” of the aspens. An acoustic diary documents the locations of this tree in Berlin and tells stories about poplars. On each of the three exhibition days, musicians will present pieces/arrangements with the whispering, rustling and trembling of aspen as a leitmotif.
Christina Ertl-Shirley lets experimental sound and storytelling enter into a dialogue in sound installations, radio plays, concerts, workshops and radio features. Her engagement as a radio producer includes composed sound art works, radio features and radio plays. She is particularly interested in the interweaving of nature and art. In her project “plants and empire” she works with sound produced by plants, received by plants, transformed and generated by plants. Therefore plants and empire hooks up plants to several self-built electronics. The unique metabolism of each plant shapes the sounds in different ways.
