The Band of Weeds
May 25, 10:30 pm
Korjaamo’s Corner Hall, free entry
On Friday evening, we’ll have a chance to listen to species that we’re not used to hearing. Familiar Finnish weeds form the Band of Weeds, which is defined by marginality. These plants are not only non-human species, but also plants that are growing in the “wrong” place and are defined as weeds.
The Band of Weeds, a sound art project by a pair of artists, Kalle Hamm and Dzamil Kamanger, makes use of audio material derived electronically from plants. At this event, it will be modified by Hamm along with Lauri Ainala, Hermanni Keko and Olli Aarni.
After the show there will be a chance to win a set of three albums by Theaster Gates and The Black Monks of Mississippi not available anywhere else.
