Joris Cohen (solo)
Music is not property, one can not posses it. It is an art; it is a prayer; and most of all, its love!
When I play handpan, I aspire to converse with the witnesses. A wordless, meaningless conversation. It is not a rehearsed and perfected script fit for all events. It is a happening, evolving and flowing as per the situation, creating an emotional intimacy between all who allow themselves to sync into the collective vibe.
I combine compositions and improvisations. Fit for concerts as well as gentle background for any event.
