Paul Panhuysen

And The Mexican Jumping Beans

Label: Het Apollohuis

Format: CD

Back from a journey to Mexico Paul Panhuysen brought mexican jumping beans which are sold there as toys on the local markets. When in Eindhoven he began to experiment with these beans in different settings. As a result a cd with different recordings was published which used piezo discs as contact microfones, while beans are activated by lamps. The beans were jumping in eight containers made of various materials like plastic, aluminium or wood among others.
