Koolwijk, Hans van
Hans van Koolwijk is a Dutch sound artist and builder of experimental musical instruments. Since 1986 he has been working in the space between visual art and music. His central work, the “Bambuso Sonoro,” originates from the idea of a single performer operating multiple flutes simultaneously. The Bambuso is an unpolished sound sculpture that is sometimes used as a musical instrument, whereby the visual is closely related to the aural. For the last 30 years, van Koolwijk has been creating and constantly adding to an extensive palette of sound machines, some very simple and others very complex.
