Sounds Like Art

Gijs Gieskes the creator of many crazy music and video devices such as my beloved HSS3i has some of his work on display at an exhibit in The Netherlands called Sounds Like Art.

“But in the exhibition SOUNDS LIKE ART are not sound artists in the spotlight, but the instruments they make. The result is an exhibition in which the unique interplay of form, materiality and technology of these new instruments can be heard, but also good to see. Participating artists are American Andy CAVATORTA specifically for Björk a set harps made to be played by gravity, hardware hacker Gijs Gieskes from existing special new electronic synthesizers and composing musician / artist Tom Verbruggen, better known as TokTek that ingenious sculptures makes that sound.” – mu.nl
