A summary
Orchestra Of Objects Combination Workshop Come and meet the ‘Pump-a-Phone’, ‘Grass-Xylo-Hopper’, and ‘Twisty-Bata-Drum’ among other creations in these fun sound and sculpture workshops. Think big! Think colourful! Think tuneful! Two super-enjoyable workshops that encourage hands-on lateral thinking and bouncy fun music-making. Join in the wall of harmonic sound and get to explore these large percussion instruments built from all kinds of metals, stone (genuine rock music!), plastic and reclaimed woods. Become a conductor by using big physical gestures and simple hand signals to guide the ensemble of wacky instruments, and learn some fun rhythms and cool tunes to play together in this physical sound feast. Come get your groovy boots on! And for the second half of the workshop welcome, all you budding makers. If you like building big then this is for you! It’s a hands-on making workshop using prepared sets of recycled plastic pipes of all sizes and colours. They can be easily plumbed and connected together creating big colourful structures (a bit like giant K’NEX). And there’s more! As well as exploring the sounds of pipes PARP! PARP!!! TRUMP! TRUMP! BUZZ BUZZ! WHIZZZZ!!! I will also bring along all kinds of different materials that can be added to the sculptures. Wheels, pumps, whistles, whizzers, spanners and just about anything that we can experiment with. This workshop lets children explore their lateral thinking and offers them a chance to work as a team on building something big and experiment with sound. So come on down and get building your ZOOM! ZOOM!, DING! DING! KA BOOM! Creations !
About your mentor
Orchestra Of Objects
Love music love life
I am a passionate musician, sculptor, builder and teacher! I love helping people have fun and unleash their creativity whilst learning. I have worked with many community groups and schools over the years to design unique interactive and fun sound sculptures. Having over thirty permanent musical sculpture installations in public parks and school play areas across the UK, I have found a variety of ways to make robust and good sounding harmonic instruments and love teaching fun and accessible ways of playing music in large groups.
