A PLACE OF FREE EXPERIMENTATION

INSTRMNTS is a touring exhibition of acoustic interactive musical instruments, sound devices and sound installations. It engages any audience with the spontaneous process of making sound, music, movement and performance.

EXPERIENCE MUSIC

The exhibition is a space of free experimentation and innovation where the visitors are invited to touch and play the instruments on display. Video projections and other multimedia touch sensitive devices are included.

MULTIPLAYER INSTRUMENTS

Developing a whole new lexicon of acoustic and performing possibilities INSTRMNTS have been performed and exhibited worldwide in cultural centers, international arts venues and festivals such as Deloitte Ignite at the Royal Opera House in London.

LISTEN, PLAY, SHARE

An exhibition where the listener witnesses and experiments a topography of music, its body and its orientation, a concept reminiscent of John Cage’s theater of music where the listener can hear, see and touch.

WORKSHOP, CREATE

In the music workshops the participants are given a simple set of instructions on how to play the instruments and are invited to play and interact through games and rhythm patterns. All of our instruments are collective and can be played by up to four musicians at a time.

PERFORMANCE, HEAR

Performances happen during the exhibition in the gallery space or in concert halls. Collaborations with local artists are also a feature of an INSTRMNTS exhibition.

INSTALLATION, CHANGE SOMETHING

Acruxson, a sound installation composed of the current family of acruxes, is coupled with acrux seasons, an app based on the acrux and built by a team of developers in collaboration with school children from Whales, UK.

PLAY OUTDOORS

The GigantikArpz is an installation and performance built with long piano strings that can have from 20 to 160 meters in length. Hitting these particular strings produces a build up of bounced sounds and harmonics with natural reverb and echo effects.
