Pierre Bastien


Event Description:

Music and mechanics collide! Experimental instrument builder and sound installation artist Pierre Bastien comes to Indianapolis from France for a unique performance that blends live trumpet sounds with screen projections of on-site, mechanical sound sculptures built by Bastien. His work is described as “a timeless sounding orchestra, both futuristic and slightly dada, conjuring ancient traditions in its surprisingly sensuous music.” Bastien will also lead a morning workshop on building mechanical instruments.
