Jaap BlonkPresented by We Are Europe
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.
