  3. This sensual tree, built of copper, reacts on the closeness of the audience. When the audience approach, the tree performs the Largo by Handel with its trembling loudspeaker-leafs. In this aria, Xerxes gives voice to his love for a tree that allows him to seek refuge in its shadow.

    Through the stem of the copper-tree, wires are led from the base to brass-leaves that tremble by the sound waves. Two sensors are placed on the stem, and through the computers and circuit cards placed in the root system they transform the movements of the audience to music, wind and light.

    Idea and intonation: Åsa and Carl Unander-Scharin
    Construction of the copper tree, and technician: Petra Kiiskinen
    Aria: Georg Friederich Handel (from Xerxes, 1738)
    Remix, song, electronics, programming: Carl Unander-Scharin
    Idea- and electronics consulting: Magnus Lundin
    Light design: Anders Larsson

  4. This version of Bizet´s Pearlfishers duet is dependent on audience interaction. An image of a dancer is projected on the bottom of a water tub of stainless steel. By touching the water the audience evokes the music and the dance, frame by frame, resembling the chronophotographic imagery of Eadward Muybridge.

    Dance and Video: Åsa Unander-Scharin
    Interaction design and programming: Mateusz Herczka in cooperation with Åsa & Carl Unander-Scharin
    Music: Georges Bizet (from Les Pêcheurs de Perles, 1863) / Remix: Carl Unander-Scharin
    Singers: Karl-Magnus Fredriksson and Carl Unander-Scharin
    Construction of the steel tub: Markus Lundblad
    Costume: Mylla Ek

  5. An electro mechanical miniature version of a scene from the ballet Petrushka originally choreographed by Michael Fokine for the Russian Ballet in Paris 1911 to music by Igor Stravinsky. Like an organ grinder it is the audience that initiates the ballerina’s circular movement, while the Petrushka puppet performs his lovingly animated dance. When the crank handle stops Petrushka´s body ceases to interact due to gravity, and he slumps, inactive, resigned to his fate.

    Choreography and movement programming: Åsa Unander-Scharin
    Puppet maker and software: Magnus Lundin
    Mechanics and stage design: Åsa Unander-Scharin, Petra Kiiskinen, Erik Persson
    Music: Carl Unander-Scharin
