    By chance, five men run into each other. They have all just lost their jobs and are worried about how things will go on with their lives, their families. Out of boredom, they rummage around in a pile of scrap metal. What was supposedly mere junk starts to make sounds of clattering and pinging. Entire musical instruments can even be built from this metal scrap. The first notes are elicited from the “stove pipes” with the help of the young audience. How could these five working men know how to do this? But as soon as they can play a piece of music, they discover that each instrument has its own unique sound. And so they introduce their respective instruments with a solo. And then it happens: they suddenly play together, off each other – a whole new experience that inspires everyone! The five decide to perform as a band in the future. And because they all had something to do with brass metal in their former professions, they quickly come up with a name for their formation: the Brassworkers! So begins a musical career, and the first piece of their own is the cool “Brassworker Rap.”

    With the friendly support of the Geert and Lore Blanken-Schlemper Foundation
