Performance
Jaap Blonk

Inspired by his lack of success in organized office jobs and academic studies, the self-taught composer and sound poet Jaap Blonk commenced on a journey to explore the Dada vein of art. While discovering phonetics and the possibilities of the human voice, the avant-gardist grew out into a well established sound poetry specialist.

Jaap Blonk’s strong stage presence and childlike freedom to improvise form the backbone of his performances. He is a well-known performer in the Netherlands as well as abroad and gives workshops on a regular basis.

At TodaysArt 2018, Blonk collaborates with Guy Ben-Ary on the project ‘cellF’, where he will perform reflexive, interactive sound pieces together with the world’s very first neural synthesizer. Read more about the project here.

This performance is presented in the framework of We Are Europe in collaboration with c/o pop.
