Thanks to the crowdfunding started by Tokyo Geidai and Baschet Japan Association, in collaboration with our Barcelona workshop, this November and December 2017, we have restored the Katsuharaphone original Baschet masterpiece from Osaka'70.

With this research and creative project, we bring back the sounds unheard during 47 years, learn about the unique sound features of this string based piece, helding concerts, workshops, and exhibition.

After KawakamiSan suddenly passed away, we -Tokyo Geidai Factory Lab led by Yoshihiro Kawasaki and the Barcelona Baschet crew-  are proud to continue the restoration project in his memory, Villeminot and Baschet brothers. Their efforts to allow new generations to learn and enjoy soundsculpture came true while they were alive, and so we will keep them.

Here you can read the full foreword to our Reissue:

This book is a classic in the history of art. In it François Baschet recounts the research and creation of his Sound Sculptures, with which he began a pioneering career combining art and science, sculpture and music. The willingness to share his findings inspired another breakthrough: participatory exhibitions, spaces where everyone could explore and play with sound. François Baschet’s conception of acoustics—a method of understanding the functional relations between form, matter, action and sound—not only gave rise to the invention of hundreds of Sound Sculptures of all sizes and sonority, which can be found all over the world, but also led François and his brother to collaborate with personalities such as Jean Cocteau, Pierre Schaeffer and ToruTakemitsu. François Baschet relates a funny collection of stories about the artistic life in Paris and New York in 40s and 60s. This reissue of The Sound Sculptures of Bernard and François Baschet includes fragments still unpublished when the first edition appeared, and incorporates the original text of the Organologie des Structures Sonores Baschet (written by the two brothers), with Spanish translations.
