Human | Machine | Nature is an electroacoustic, sound-archaeological composition by Sebastian Bode and Jonas Wolter. As WOODEN PEAK they have been releasing albums of experimental pop music since 2009 and under the name TELESKOP- "Studio for Aural Arts" they create textures and sound art for films and museums.
The linchpin of Human | Machine | Nature is the Energiefabrik Knappenrode, a former briquette factory in an east german mining area that was stopped and converted into a museum after the end of the GDR. For more than a year, Bode + Wolter collected samples and field recordings from the past and present of the huge site and, together with Wencke Wollny (bass clarinet), Antonia Hausmann (trombone) and Christian Dähne (bass), returned to the acoustically unique turbine hall of the museum, to perform the resulting piece.
The four parts of Human | Machine | Nature are each dedicated to a location of the former factory and will be released as audio + video on 21.01.2022 digitally via TELESKOP.
