Plants and Music
During the exhibition opening, Vasulka Kitchen will showcase an interactive sound performance by Nikol Štrobachová, focusing on music by plants. The main exhibit will be Aechmea fasciata. Visitors will be able to interact with the plant by touching it and talking to it. The second and smaller sound station connected to headphones will use different kinds of fruit.
Nikol Štrobachová (aka Kukla, Bruno) is based in Brno, where she works for Bastl Instruments. She also works at the Synth Library in Prague. She focuses on educational activities related to modular synthesizers (Patchení with Nikol) including workshops for women and LGBTQI people. She established an outfit called Pink Noise. Its priorities (as well as Bastl or Synth Library) are to create an environment for making music to everyone without any distinction.
