ABOUT US

An all-in-one Exhibition with Workshops and Concerts
INSTRMNTS is a series of unique musical instruments created by composer Victor Gama and developed by PangeiArt. In the last twenty years we’ve been closely collaborating with foundations, museums, cultural centers and festivals to install interactive exhibitions with workshops and live performances fulfilling educational and entertaining programs and engaging audiences worldwide.

WHAT WE DO

EXHIBITION

A touring exhibition where visitors can freely play our unique multiplayer musical instruments and engage in  workshops, performances, games and talks for all audiences. A great way to bring in children from local schools. Ready to be installed with stands, multimedia, sound and some lighting.

CUSTOM DESIGN

From concept to fabrication we design and build custom made instruments and sound installations for permanent exhibitions, educational programs, recreational facilities, special projects for composers or ensembles or as vibrant interior design objects.

OUR WORK


INSTRMNTS is a series of multiplayer musical instruments, inspired by nature, designed with passion and made to be shared through our itinerant exhibition.

ACRUX

The acrux, was inspired by the Southern Cross constellation that is only visible in the night sky of the southern hemisphere. Each component of this instrument is associated to a particular aspect of that constellation. The vibrating circular lamellae represent the orbits of imaginary planets around each of the stars.

UANA

UANA is a new musical instrument that can be played by up to four musicians. It was specifically designed for educational programs for children and young people. The Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences of West Virginia in Charleston, USA has one installed in their new music studio facility.

TIPAW

One of four contemporary musical instruments designed and built for the National Museums of Scotland in Edinburgh. Tipaw is short for tiger paw and was created following rumors of a bengali tiger that had broken loose from Edinburgh Zoo and was hiding in the museum. Tipaw is played by hitting the lower section of the inverted singing bowls. Like a tiger walking silently through the forest, tipaw has a gentle but sustained sound.

TOHA

The Toha was inspired by the COLLECTIVE nests of sociable weaver birds in Southern Africa. It  can be played by two musicians seating facing each other. Each musician has a set of strings with the same scale on each side of the instrument.

VIDEO


Over the last twenty years we have shared the INSTRMNTS exhibition with audiences from countries on three continents. We are constantly developing it further.

‘the Paul Hamlyn Hall looked amazing. The whole feeling around the exhibition with it’s interactive inclusiveness was perfect. I think it was the best use of the space I have seen for Deloitte Ignite Festival.’
