Band of Weeds

The Band of Weeds was founded in 2015. At first, it was a conceptual band created by Kalle Hamm and Dzamil Kamanger, and existed only on a paper. It became a real band in 2017, and started to release LPs and give live concerts.


The current members of the band are now Olli Aarni, Lauri Ainala, Kalle Hamm and Hermanni Keko featuring different plants depending on the project. All the sound material is recorded from the plants using the method developed by a Soviet botanist Ivan Gunar. There are ionised liquids running inside the plant tissues, and the changes in their electro-magnetic field can be converted to the sound range audible for the human ear.

Songs: The Vegetative Soul, Give Me Some Water, Underground Root Movement, A Garden Within A Garden, They Tried To Bury Us They Didn't Know We Were Seeds

Karen Werner

In late March 2020, a radio artist friend invited a few friends, including me, from around the world to make short audio pieces about "the state of things from where we are." This was during a tense stretch during the Corona virus pandemic. Here is my short audio postcard about the State of Things, made by the windowsill in my sublet in Bergen, Norway.
