New Sounds from Poland: Małe Instrumenty

Concert

November 14, 2014 / 20:00

Founded by Pawel Romanczuk in 2006, Małe Instrumenty (Small Instruments) are a band exploring new sounds using a wide array of small instruments. The instruments used in their sonic experiments feature an ever expanding array of professional instruments, sound toys made for children or naive in nature, strange musical inventions as well as a whole array of small items that aren't really instruments but do make a sound.

In addition, Małe Instrumenty will give a music workshop called Small Instruments on Saturday 15th November.

Held on a Long Friday at Pera Cafe, the concert is free of admissions. Space is limited, drop in.

Concerts are presented on the occasion of the 600th anniversary of Poland-Turkey diplomatic relations.

Istanbul-Paris-Istanbul: Mario Prassinos

Istanbul-Paris-Istanbul: Mario Prassinos

Mario Prassinos liked Istanbul more than the current Istanbulites of today. It is obvious that you can understand this from the article written by her daughter Catherine Prassinos in the Pera Museum's book on the artist.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
