Arachnids and Anthropos, an interspecies encounter mediated by the playful modality of sound. Arachnid Orchestra. Jam Sessions allows for exploration of the sophisticated vibrational communication of arachnids, expanding communicative possibilities into the low-frequency spectrum and inspiring a more complex understanding of the more-than-human means of perceiving and existing.
Exploring the arachnid’s sophisticated mode of communication through vibrations, several instruments were developed to amplify the vibrations of spiders, rendering them audible to other species. These instruments, ranging from strings, to percussion and Aeolic, were also incorporated by musicians into their live performances. The audio publishing project brings together jam sessions between arachnids and anthropos performed live in the exhibition, and various recordings produced in the studio in Berlin.

Predicated on playfulness and creativity, this project instigates a more complex understanding of the animal world.
