Hans Beckers (°1986) studied Multimedia Arts at the School of Arts (KASK) in Ghent. His work is mainly focused on sound, installations, music and performances, but he also makes drawings, etchins and compositions for theatre, video and performances. In his work he tries to find a balance between music and visual arts. Using self-made instruments, he shows how objects that are not generally considered fit to play music on can in fact become musical instruments. His performances are a combination of composition and improvisation, where he plays a whole range of materials rhythmically, melodically and harmonically.
