Workshop Musical balloons

Sunday 28 June 2020 • 1.30 p.m. • 60' • Open doors
Buitenhof/Voorhof, Landcommanderij Alden Biesen, Kasteelstraat 6, 3740 Bilzen

Nadar's persona is inextricably linked to the image of a hot air balloon. During his many trips, he used it to be the first photographer to take pictures from the air.

The balloon is also central in this workshop - albeit a smaller version than the one with which Nadar used to explore different heights. With a nod to the 200th birthday of Nadar, you will work with an everyday latex balloon, a popular object for party decoration. However, the workshop leader takes the balloon out of its known context: What kind of sounds does a balloon make? What options do you have for playing it? What kind of sound play can arise?

Join in and discover for yourself how musical balloons may sound.
