Hansko Visser

Composer / musician Hansko Visser has been building instruments for a long time. Usually based on a “conventional” instrument, but with a radically different result. Materials include wood, strings, stone, metal, skins, rather than electronic/digital.

Currently working as a part-time shaman at Stiggelbout Slagwerk. After creating Chleb and Rosa (a bass marimba and a cardboard organ), he now works with his sorcerer’s apprentice Anne Tom to create Tetra Dizzent, a wooden four pipe mobile organ, that will also play a role in the graphic score of Kemenymadar.

Has just started work on a piece for 14 tuned log drums (repaired for Slagwerk Den Haag), Udo, Krin and Unu Blue, an e-gitarre painted with blue blackboard paint, tuned and played with a cymbal from Nepal.
