Yuri Landman

Yuri Landman is a Dutch musical instrument maker, musician and cartoonist. He has built adventurous guitars for Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth. Stringed instruments, all of which can be amplified electronically, at times traditional and at times futuristic, are his trademark.
Since 2009, Landmann has been organising instrument making workshops at festivals, concert halls and academies across Europe. He has been performing with the Yuri Landman Ensemble since 2012 and also plays solo experimental electronics and is part of the two-piece band Bismuth. For his solo shows, he has developed instruments made of wood, strings, metal rods, electric motors and PET bottles. In 2017, he built a sound installation for iii in The Hague in the Netherlands and developed a new instrument making workshop for Lee Ranaldo’s Lost Ideas Festival in Menen. Landman’s collections of experimental musical instruments for artist residencies, research and education are managed by cultural institutions across Europe, such as the WORM multimedia center (Rotterdam) or Muziekgebouw aan’t IJ (Amsterdam). He also teaches at various academies and universities across Europe.
