Can you assemble a piece of IKEA furniture?
Fine, then you’ll also manage to fix your own string instrument in no time!
Dutch inventor and musician Yuri Landman fabricated an accessible and pleasant workshop whereby participants will leave with a finished electric instrument.
Based on the famous geometric abstract paintings by Malevich, Landman found a way to enhance the sounds of strings by crossing them. The sounds of these clustered strings can be compared to Chinese gongs, Gamelan bells and spooky metallic sounds often occuring in scary movies.
Each participant makes his own sets of crossed strings, resulting in an abstract sound plate sculpture. The instrument is electric, so can be plugged into a guitar amp for maximum sound pressure!
In the past Yuri Landman has worked for luminaries such as Sonic Youth, Liars, Melt-Banana, Kaki King, Micachu and The Shapes, etc.

NO COMFORTS – NO ZONES
Due to the construction work currently being undertaken, KultuurKaffee has opted for a nomadic existence and, together with a guest curator, assembles twice a year a multidisciplinary programme of events at various locations dotted around the city of Brussels. Spring 2016 musician Johannes Verschaeve pushes his festival guests (along with himself) out of their comfort zone(s) and invites them at The Brussels Art Institute of Belgian artist Jan De Cock (BAI_) for a surprising six weeks.
