De GROET

The GROET (The Greeting) is a comical, cheerful fountain of sound, and an ode to the magic you feel when you experience a sound for the first time. A bunch of transparent spheres hang above a stage full of remarkable rotating machines.
The spheres are balloons with a 2 metre diameter. Attached to the balloons are hoses which end in an organ pipe. The public can use pegs to allow air to escape, resulting in an extremely shaky/vulnerable organum.
The rotating machines are the electro-acoustic sound objects of Yuri Landman. They will sound at set times, providing a rhythmic background to Nora Mulder and Koen Kaptijn’s funny bagpipes. During designated sessions people will be invited to play together with the machines. Visitors can be photographed at these sessions.
