ArtJam: Colin Foulke, Handpan
March 14, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Play, create and explore music and sound with Handpan maker Colin Foulke. Interact with a selection of unique instruments from his personal collection, play Handpans that he crafts, and make your own instrument and noisemakers!
Colin Foulke is a Handpan maker, tuner, performer and overall enthusiast. The handpan is a relatively new instrument, only being 20 years old. It is a hand played relative of the Steelpan and was invented in Switzerland. For the last decade, Colin has traveled the world performing on Handpans and has spent the last 7 years crafting them here, in Santa Rosa. His open-sourced hydroforming technique dramatically increased the spread and availability of the instrument while making it more accessible to the DIY type maker. He recently performed at a TEDx event and in January of 2020 was on national television in Japan for his work. He is also a father to two daughters who love CMOSC!
