Poly Palms: Windows wide open 35°C
@ sound art radio program FUNKT, 16 – 18 April 2021

Poly Palms is an ensemble founded by Andreas O. Hirsch. In 2020 he invited his fellow musicians and performers Jan Arlt, Patricia Koellges and Volker Hennes to get acquainted with an electro-acoustic instrument which he developed years ago from a discovery made during a trip through southern Morocco: Dried palm leaves have the potential to be naturally grown Kalimbas because their spikes can be plugged and amplified. After extensive use of this instrument in the course of solo performances, Hirsch constructed new instruments for his colleagues. In August 2020 the four musicians, struggling with the intense summer heat, started to rehearse. Here comes a newly remixed compilation of some extracts of those sessions.


With many thanks to the Cologne Cultural Office and Kunststiftung NRW for supporting the founding of POLY PALMS.
