HotchPotch Festival @ Platform Minerva, Groningen[NL]


Together with Syrian musician Karoun Baghboudarian I made a cool new instrument for children.

Karoun made a new color-based system of music notation for kids to quickly get in to music making.

I helped her developing this into a real instrument.

We made a table where different color-coded plates would play to musical notes related to in Karoun's notation system.


The HotchPotch festival was a great day full of musical experiments from both the Frank Mohr Institute and the Prins Claus Conservatory.
