Piet Jan Blauw visual artist, musician, the inventor of instruments and installations.

Since 2000 Piet Jan Blauw has been focused on music performances in Europe and Mexico - Sol festival (Spain), Psy Fi festival (NL), Paradiso Amsterdam, Cumbre Tajin (Mex). Performed together with: Jorge Reyes in Mexico and Europe, DJ Isis at Mysteryland (NL) and ADE (NL), Cheko Mosqueira in Mexico and Europe, Alyosha Barreiro at Cumbre Tajin (Mex) with the project “Sonic Explorations”. Alyosha and Nok Niuk at ADE (NL)

The music is a mix of Prehispanic-Electro,Downtempo and Trance. Blauw's instruments produce archetypal sounds. His music can never be played in exactly the same way and demands improvisation. He sculpts soundscapes as he plays with his hands in invisible beams. This results in a pantheon of sounds that are ministered by samplers, sequencers, and processors. He drives his own aural sculptures to their limits in every performance. Technology enables him to push the limits, yet he always uses it as a tool of creation.
