Tea and Dragons is a recurring music session that focuses on listening rather than performing, born out of an experimental music experience that first took place in 2021, hosted and designed by founder lokiproject. 

The game; In every session; three musicians, one visual artist and an interested group of people meet each other on the same floor to make one pot of tea with all the ingredients that are brought. While the tea is heating up, the artists translate place and time into three rounds of sound compositions; re-infusing the tea, to wake up the dragon in the room.

"It is not the staging of perfection and order, but rather a stage to enhance the natural beauty of chaos.”

Visual Artist
Robbie Meertens “chaotic pendulum” 

Chaotic pendulum was a self-playing instrument/installation. It consisted of a combination of a large heavy pendulum that has a continuous predictable movement and a small wooden pendulum that moves erratically and hits or misses objects you place in its possible path. The composition was decided by the architecture of materials that is placed in that path.
