LOLA landscape architects and Staalplaat Soundsystem present a new installationÂ Composed Nature, developed for the Centrum voor Beeldende Kunst Dordrecht, it consists of a matrix of 64 trees. Controllable, mechanical vibrators are mounted on each individual tree and are operated by custom made software. The sound of each tree can vary from a barely audible noise to a heavy â€œGreen noiseâ€, thereby offering different sound textures to be played. To play the trees, many spatial sonic patterns have been programmed, and a musical composition titled â€œShiver Me Timbersâ€ has been written. The piece is shown as an installation, and enables visitors to activate patterns via their mobile phones interactively. What is left unspoken is who is in control: nature, mankind or technology.
