Some more projects…
(IN) Konbini: duo with Lynn Cassiers, founded in May/June 2018, while touring Tokyo and Taiwan, reminiscing the good ol’ days with The Crappy Mini Band. The duo improvises fragmented songs, with long instrumental intro’s, outro’s and intermezzo’s.
THE FABULOUS CHOI SISTER + PAK YAN LAU: Shadow theatre with Juhyun and Sunyoung Choi doing the figurines and manipulation with 3 overhead projectors, while i make the music for it. We just finished a creation for children. Soon more… https://choijuhyun.wordpress.com/
MALRIC/LAU DUO: Duo with pianist Lionel Malric, started as a prepared piano duo (DUO POUR 454 CHORDES), but due to the unreality of playing concerts on 2 grand piano’s, an electric duo with Lionel on the Clavichord and me on the Hohner Pianet and objects (just can’t leave them out!) came into existence. Heavy Acoustic and Smaller Electric versions will probably have their outputs on records in the future… (here a taste of Duo Pour 454 Chordes: https://soundcloud.com/pakyanlau/duo-pour-454-chordes-take-27)
CORSANO/LAU DUO: Extended solo’s but in duo with Chris Corsano on the drums, and me on a bunch of toypiano’s, electronics and clockworks. We did a residency fall 2013 in Les Ateliers Claus (with thanks to a bourse of Smartbe), and now we are preparing a release with Les Albums Claus.
