Where everything spits and buzzes and ticks and bangs and bumps and falls and flies…

Composer Arthur Wagenaar and juggling artist Guido van Hout have joined forces and are melting music and young performers into a brand-new entity. Thanks to instruments of their own design, juggling turns into music, and music is made by juggling, leading to a completely new genre unique to the Netherlands.

Sounds Like Juggling is all about patterns. In juggling, in music, in life. The power and beauty of patterns, but also being stuck in a pattern, and breaking free from them. An art that is more important now than it has ever been.

About the makers
Composer Arthur Wagenaar combines all sorts of genres and likes to use instruments he builds himself. At earlier shows, he placed a converted piano and 12 overhead projectors in a country barn, and turned the smartphone into a musical instrument with a dangerous will of its own.

Juggling artist Guido van Hout’s shows for young audiences include Droge Druppels and Out of the Box, in which he mixed juggling with music, dynamic fine art and physical theatre.

Sounds Like Juggling is also part of Gaudeamus, a festival for young music pioneers.
