Ursuppe is a sound performance that involves jelly made out of the seaweed “Agar agar” and analog oscillators casted in a jelly-like material, in a setup that creates a complex soundscape characterized by unpredictability and uncertainty.
The combination of these elements produce a stratified and unstable mixture of drones with a variable frequency and oscillating rhythmic figures. Trough this system the performers shape a network of relations between the different islands and modify throughout it the flow of energy.
A video camera placed above the performers shows on a bigger scale the actions of the performers, their effect on the matter, and its oxidation and liquefaction.
