The event creator says
Apparatus is the system of relationships that is established between two elements: the musical instrument and its player. While each element has the capacity to capture, interpret, model, control, or secure the gestures of the other element - it is the interaction and the changing of each element's role that form the concert. It is the mechanics of the physical act of playing guitar and how the body can become the extension of the instrument, its major manipulator, or simply both.

Nico Couck performs music by Simon Steen-Andersen and Rama Gottfried, and new works by Brigitta Muntendorf, Kai Johannes Polzhofer and Dan Tramte. Integrating guitars, choreography, J.S. Bach, electronics, and even YouTube, Apparatus is a multimedia event in which the physical and mechanical duality is the denominator.
