Thomas Bloch

Thomas Bloch is one of the world’s leading specialists in the field of strange instruments. The Ondes Martenot (an early electronic instrument that looks like a cross between a synthesizer and a theremin) and the eighteenth-century glass harmonica are two of his favorites. He is a member of several classical ensembles, teaches in Strasbourg and composes music for all genres. Daft Punk, Gorillaz, Vanessa Paradis, Phil Minton, Fred Frith … these are but a few from a long list of collaborations. In the KRAAK festival Bloch will play original compositions for the two instruments.
