The Pumpkin Orchestra is a live improvisation ensemble performing with fresh vegetables and synthesisers. It is founded by Rocsa, a Gent based community-arts organisation, as resident orchestra at the Piramuide and it’s garden.
The orchestra embraces a core of four players; Ernst Maréchal, Olivier Provost, Kasper Jordaens and Hendrik leper, a changing pool of local enthusiasts and is conducted and mixed by musician and electronics wizard Dago Sondervan.
The Pumpkin Orchestra can also come as an interactive installation and workshop.
