Yuri Landman’s Instruments

Twister, Moodswinger and Burner Harp Guitars by experimental luthier Yuri Landman.

Yuri Landman is an experimental instrument builder and musician. Based on prepared guitar techniques, he built his first instrument in 2001 to solve the inaccuracy of instant preparations. In 2012 Yuri formed the 2-piece band Bismuth with multi-instrumentalist Arnold van de Velde. In the same year he started his infamous Strat Eraser Project to help musicians get rid off their useless gear.

In 2006 he got in contact with the band Liars. Developed over six years of prototyping, he fully realized the Moodswinger for them with commissions from numerous other musicians to follow. Yuri has custom built derivatives for such musical luminaries as Lou Barlow, Sonic Youth, dEUS, The Dodos and many more. Since 2009 Yuri leads practical building workshops — The Home Swinger Project – where people build their own electric instrument, often followed by an afternoon rehearsal on the second day and a 40 minute ensemble performance with multiple Home Swingers, drums, basses, and guitars in the tradition of the Rhys Chatham and Glenn Branca compositions.

Check out his official website here and watch a TEDxTalk Landman gave last year.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
