Music & Science (2) - The Incredible Art of Musical Whistling and the Sound of Guitar
   The Museum technology seminar is holding a series of mini-concerts since June 2013, as an innovative staging of the Intermediatheque’s exhibition space. Following the bandoneon and cello duet, this second edition features a duo by world-champion whistler Yuki Takeda and virtuoso Venezuelan cuatro player Ken Toyoda. Through the repertoire of traditional and modern Venezuelan tunes, we invite you to explore the infinite potential and artistic beauty of one of the most primitive instruments: whistling. We are looking forward to seeing you at the museum.
