X-plosion!

[drums]

In a special programme for young people, the quartet plays work by pioneering composers. They make a musical journey through time and the world in which a wide variety of styles and percussion instruments come their way.

In their continuously evolving search for the BL!NDMAN language, they meander along an adventurous and lively musical path where everything can, may and will be percussion. They use marimba, snare drums, drums, djembes and their voices, but objects such as light switches, tubes and metal trash are also transformed into instruments. By using so many instruments, the musicians create very different styles: from classical to contemporary, from jazz to Latin.

X-plosion! is a fully acoustic programme that introduces young people in a playful and surprising way to the oeuvre from classical to contemporary, including Belgian, composers.
