Success! Zvov Sensory Funded! Time to Prepare!
Crowdfunding conclusion: Through Voordekunst.nl we raised over 6,000 Euros for “Zvov Sensory” Tour of the Netherlands. Our intimate and immersive performances of sound, touch, smell, and taste for a blindfolded audience will now envelop more people through your support! Thanks to more than 100 donors and several foundations we managed to gather the starter money we need.
This was the first time I was on the fundraising side of this type of campaign and I learned so much about how to promote (post a million Facebook posts), write personal messages, and help design gifts for different levels. I’ve been involved as composer and sensory performer, but never as fundraiser before. Our manager Iro Karampapa was a key player in this campaign, and setting a goal that seemed unreachable to us musicians. It was also a bonding experience for the whole Zvov Sensory team as we compulsively refreshed our funding page and celebrated every single donation, whatever the size. That is the beauty of crowdfunding, of course. Everyone can join, whatever his/her means. Especially touching for me was the support that came from people from all different times of my life and from different countries all over the world. It turned into a way to rekindle lost contact with some from years past.
THANK YOU again for your encouragement and support to all of the donors and foundations. 🙂 Hope to ‘sense’ many of you at our shows!

“A surprisingly, intimate and confronting experience, being blindfolded and therefore completely focused on the senses of hearing, feeling and smelling”. – Cornelis de Bondt; Composition teacher, The Royal Conservatory, The Hague
About the Zvov Sensory tour
From October 2016, Zvov trio (violist Maya Felixbrodt, IL; cellist Clara Rivière Visier, ES; and bassist Shaya Feldman, IL) will tour in the Netherlands with composer Yvonne Freckmann, US/DE, inviting new audiences to discover the experience of Zvov Sensory. The tour will take place in different cities around the country, starting with Amsterdam, Den Haag, Rotterdam, Arnhem, and more. After a Zvov Sensory tour in Israel this past September, we are very excited to bring the project back to the Netherlands, where everything started. We have you, our family & friends and all the Zvov fans (some of whom have experienced our sensory related performances), supporting us on this journey. Parallel to that, the backing of KunstenIsrael, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, partners van voordekunst, VSB fonds, and ArtistsinTune help us reach a greater audience.
Zvov Sensory invites you to enter a space of imagined reality,
led by sounds and sensory experiences.
You’re welcome to come unprepared
