Dan Senn's International Space Band Audio US/NL 2013



The American sound artist and composer Dan Senn is the inventor of these instruments that he calls ‘lydes’ (lyde= Danish for sound). In fact they are cast aluminum lids of pans. On two occassions the artists Petra Dubach and Mario van Horrik were invited to participate in a performance with the lydes. It seems that their performance got Dan's approval, because Dan sent 12 lydes to the Netherlands, and this meant the birth of Dan Senn's International Space Band. The Band consists of a group of max 12 people who enjoy playing the lydes. For the PNEM festival Petra and Mario will give a workshop, open for everyone to join. No musical skills are required. Petra Dubach and Mario van Horrik will give a small concert at the end of the workshop.
