François Baschet, A New Sound in Music, 1957

A NEW SOUND IN MUSIC - The Baschet Brothers and their Revolutionary Instruments

Brothers François and Bernard Baschet were the originators of the Sound-Sculpture and many other innovative instruments.

François was a sculptor and Bernard an engineer. They created striking visual forms which are determined by sound.

Their work is also strongly inspired by the notion of the social function of art, in particular public participation.

Their quest for new sounds led the brothers to combine new materials of the time, usually through folding metal sheets into geometric shapes. Their sculptures range from small folded metal of a few centimetres up to structures several meters high with loud, impressive and complex sounds.
