Hans Beckers creates fabulous sound installations. For his project Klopotec Orkestra, he went to an old enchanted house in a Norwegian fishing village, Kråkeslottet. The man who lives there collects magnificent pieces of driftwood crafted by the sea before being abandoned on the shore. With this wood, Hans Beckers built a remarkable orchestra of klopotecs: windmills fitted with blades that long ago warned off Slovenien vine snakes.
Amidst his windmill orchestra, Hans Beckers forms a dialogue with Teun Verbruggen, an exceptional percussionist who has earned his spurs with FES, Mélanie de Biasio and Jef Neve Trio. Together, they transform the Klopotec Orkestra into a visual and auditory spectacle that will rattle, drum and astound as a colourful shadow play.
