Baschet Brothers

The Baschet Brothers were two French brothers named François Baschet (born 30 March 1920, in Paris; died 11 February 2014) and Bernard Baschet (born 24 August 1917, Paris; died 17 July 2015[1]) who collaborated on creating sound sculptures and inventing musical instruments, such as the cristal Baschet. François Baschet was a sculptor and Bernard Baschet an engineer. The Baschet Brothers invented the inflatable guitar, the aluminum piano and many other experimental musical instruments. They created an "educational instrumentarium" to expose young people to musical concepts. Baschet‘s research started in the 1950s artistic turmoil, soon turning the two brothers into the pioneers of sound sculpture, in addition to making them highly regarded by musicians, composers, experimental directors.
