An ensemble performance based on Pantha du Prince’s 2020 album of the same name.

Fact has partnered with Italy’s Nextones Festival to bring you highlights from this year’s event, which takes place at Cava La Beola di Monte, a historic quarry located between the shores of Lake Maggiore and Val D’Ossola.

In our final set from the festival, Pantha du Prince presents Conference of Trees, a performance based on his 2020 album of the same name, which sought to imagine what it sounds like when trees communicate. The instruments Pantha du Prince uses on Conference of Trees were partly handmade by the artist himself, who wanted to explore the sonic characteristics of different woods in the project.

Pantha du Prince is joined in the performance by a percussion ensemble consisting of Håkon Stene and Bendik Hovik Kjeldsberg, (who collaborated on his previous ensemble project, The Bell Laboratory), and Manuel Chittka, drummer for German artist Jungstötter.
