Japanese musician and sound artist FUJI||||||||||TA creates dreamy soundscapes that arise from natural acoustic phenomena, such as water and wind. In 2009, he created his own instrument, an eleven-pipe organ that is played not with a keyboard but with a traditional Japanese air pump. Because the instrument didn’t exist yet, Fujita had to invent his own way of playing and take the time to develop a musical language for it. The result is colorful and fragile harmonic tapestries, to which he adds sounds of water and his voice live. Fujita has collaborated with artists such as Akio Suzuki in the past and has also created several sound installations. In 2021, the album iki was released by the label Hallow Ground, an introverted and emotional album that, for the time being, is the culmination point of ten years of experimentation with the self-built pipe organ.
Brussels-based sound artist and musician Lukas De Clerck seeks the exceptional in the everyday. His goal: to evoke a playground where the listener is welcome. With his solo project Bloedneus & de Snuitkever he wants to (literally) breathe new life into an ancient musical instrument: the Aulos. This double reed blower is portrayed on many antique statues, but due to a lack of recorded music sources, it remains a guess as to what this instrument would have sounded like. De Clerck made new versions of this millennia-old instrument and gave it a contemporary interpretation.
