On May 21 Cortizona Records will release Pak Yan Lau's Bakunawa, co-produced by and recorded partly in STUK.
During a two-day residency in November 2020, Pak Yan Lau worked on Bakunawa, a continuation of her solo project Book of Toy, where she recorded her fascination for the natural overtones of toy pianos and pendules. Now she takes it to another level by writing for a five-piece ensemble. Bakunawa explores a combination of unconventional instrumentation (pendules, toy pianos, metal tubes, harp) and a delicate use of electronics.
Have a look at the STUK+ session with Pak Yan Lau, recorded during her November 2020 residency in STUK.
