reed + rasp
…an exploration of sound sensations derived from friction and air oscillation.
Displaying inner body sounds that make their way outside into the world. They are carried on the airstream that escapes the body - birthed through an instrument to become an audible voice that moistens and clings to the eardrum.
A physical approach to the instrument, revealing the sounds of the inner body; pulsating, breathing, digesting.
Jonas Engel’s work explores the creation of acoustic noise and the sonority of wind instruments utilizing extended techniques, instrument-alterations and eventually the electrification of those instruments. He uses a vast array of instruments and materials such as: reeds going into soft-PVC-hoses, ABS plastic trumpet or just his regular saxophone - ending up in the amplification of various thoughts and processes.
