INSTRUMENTS MAKE PLAY is a community about self invented musical instruments in the form of concerts, an exchange, workshops, exhibitions and residencies. In November and December 2017 we had our first edition in three cities; Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Deventer. The series is programmed and produced by Lukas Simonis, Julie Dassaud and Harco Rutgers. Klangendum is the production ‘company’.
Besides being a festival for invented instruments, Instruments Make Play wants to be an international platform for musicians, builders and artists as well. Our first aim; to collect information about anybody who ever invented an instrument and put it online, in order to grow a database of names and aural furniture.
