are prepared loudspeakers and four musicians manipulating the speakers vibrations
which are generated by electronic circuits.


The fundamental principle behind Papa Pacini is the use of loudspeakers without casing as
musical instruments. Electronically generated oscillations is the source material which excites
the speakers membranes, which are then modulated by finger pressure.
Furthermore, the speakers are prepared with resonating materials or ordinary household objects,
occasionally resulting in complex speaker-induced mechanisms, thus creating a broad
polymetric sound spectrum. Hereby the original function of loudspeakers, which is to reproduce
a signal as exact as possible, is challenged and explored in a playful manner.
