Karel Goetghebeur is the owner and driving force of the internationally known Belgian saxophone brand "Adolphe Sax & Cie". In 2014 Karel came up with the idea to recycle artillery shells from the world wars and turn them into saxophones.
Raphael Ravenscroft became world famous with the saxophone solo from "Baker Street" by Gerry Rafferty. Raphael came to Bruges in 2014 to visit Adolphe Sax & Cie. His view on the Sax4Pax project was of crucial importance.
In 2014, 4 days before Karel and Raphael planned to announce their collaboration, Raphael unexpectedly passed away.
The creative duo Scarlett Raven and Marc Marot are a vital part of Sax4Pax.
Daughter of the late Raphael Ravenscroft, Scarlett is a young British artist who graduated from the Central Saint Martins School of Art (London, UK).
Marc, also Scarlett's manager, is a creative genius, has extensive experience in the music industry and knows all there is about augmented reality. By combining their expertise, they make a perfect duo.
They collaborate with the prestigious UK based Castle Galleries and have sold their work internationally. They are the first artists to use augmented reality in paintings.
You. That's you, in the first place. Although someone came up with the initial idea, this project is not possible without your help.
November 11, 2018 marked the culmination of a full century since the end of the four year long Great War. Now it's time, not to forget, but to clean up. Let us together "beat weapons into plowshares", or rather: into "saxophones".
Share this message, hang up a poster, reserve one of the 193 "Sax4Pax" saxophones.
Will you chose to be a part of this historic Sax4Pax "movement”?
