Yuri Landman DIY Instrument Building Workshops
6th-8th February 2015
Experimental inventor of musical instruments, Yuri Landman, is visiting Islington Mill to deliver a series of workshops demonstrating his fascinating craft. Attendees will have the opportunity to build an instrument and participate in a performance using it. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain insight into the work of one of the most creative minds in instrument design. The day after the workshops Yuri Landman will play his musical compositions with the group of builders and create an ensemble performance. The participants play two musical compositions, starting in a minimal structure one by one, with each introduction creating more sonic complexity and volume, resulting in a “wall of sound” crescendo comparable with the drone works of Sonic Youth or the symphonic guitar compositions of Rhys Chatham and Glenn Branca. -Fri FEB 6th - 19.00-23.00 - Electric Kalimba workshop, costs 75 Pounds.
