Ursuppe (2013 – 2015) is a participatory sound performance including fruits, vegatables, jelly, electronics and people.

An unstable soundscape of drones and oscillating rhythmic figures, repetitive patterns that changes over time.

The sound is produced by a series of oscillators that are connected with organic materials, whose are conducting electricity and therefore modulating the electronics that are connected to them.

Electricity and performers are then modifying the materials, trying to find and keep interesting sound patterns that emerge.

Ursuppe, is the german word for “primordial soup”. The audience is invited to join and become a fundamental ingredient of the soup.

A network of relations between organic and inorganic creates a sort of “moist media”, through which people are asked to get their hands dirty.

“Try to connect a cucumber with an apple”
