Yuri Landman is a flying dutch builder, designer and inventor of electrical strings instruments spreadding them all around the world and through brilliant musicians. Workshops concerts and lectures became his method to create communities around his work and his musical approach.
As a scientist, Yuri tried to find out how you can calculate the pitch of tones and how to manipulate them. So he came up with instruments on which you can tune your overtones! From the building of those instruments, Yuri developed into a musicologists, where he concentrated on micro-tonality and came up with a consonance theory based on physical laws.
