Christina Ertl-Shirley works with sound produced by plants, received by plants, transformed and generated by plants. For performance the plants are hooked up to self-made electronics. The unique timber of each plants modulates the frequencies of the plants. While Felicity works with found animal sounds, modifying their characteristics through applying digital effects.
