Cologne-based musician and visual artist aka Andreas Hirsch, brings a peculiar instrument he has been developing: the Palmonica, an electrified palm tree leaf that produces sounds akin to the thumb piano’s.

Via live sampling procedures and effect pedals he is building up pieces that have both references to minimal music and electronics.

Influences reach from Fluxus Music, Moon Dog through to Southeast Asian Music.

In 1998, Hirsch performed Robin Page's "Plant Piece" at The Roxy in New York, for the opening gala show of "Playing with Matches", by Al & Beck Hansen; the piece found him intimidating a plastic plant for 45 minutes. Since then, Hirsch has been involved with TreeSpeedMusic.

During March 2010 TreeSpeedMusic has been creating his performance project "TreeSpeedIsland" at the Watermill Center on Long Island. His gig at the Project Issue Room will involve elements of this project.

Hirsch has been exhibiting and performing throughout Europe, involving concerts at "La Nuit Blanche" in Paris, Kunsthalle Fridericianum in Kassel, Germany and Danese, NYC.
