The piece simulates in 36 minutes a long and slow crossfade between documentary and sound art.
The ornithologist Frank Steinheimer starts at the Galalapagos archipel and explains especiation among birds and how the listening of wrong songs can can generate new species among birds. The original recordings of Galapagos finches (Macauly archive) , become more and more independent and form up in musical structures. Virtual instruments adapt the real bird songs. They create projection space for imaginary species and open questions. Later Steinheimer also discusses the evolution of humans and their intervention in their own germline. He explains that meaning of climate changes in the future, but bevor he can come to end, his own voice is changed and he disappears peu à peu. The piece itself performs the creation of a new species/genre. It ends up as a radio hybrid, with no chance for reproduction.
Also as multi channel installation.
