TALKING GONGS

OSCIBOUNCER

ROCKING CHAIRS

KLOPOTEC ORKESTRA
Hans Beckers

STAPSTRUMENT
Stichting Logos

With Stapstrument everyone gets a small pump strapped to their feet to be used as a bellows. With the ball and heel of your foot you play the separate mobile organ pipes. By coming to simple arrangements you can have fun making music together: loud or quiet, fast or slow, high or low.

SPOTTER
Chris Koolmees

This slightly addictive dance machine will convert your unique dance moves into brilliant video scenes and music. You can compose your own music as well as conjuring up amazing video images just by dancing. Spotter invites you to move, fly, fall and make music.
