WE DESIGN MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS
and engage audiences in making music!

MUSIC AND CREATIVITY

INSTRMNTS is a touring exhibition of collaborative musical instruments and sound installations. It engages audiences in a spontaneous process of making music, discovering the sounds of new and original instruments such as the toha, acrux, tipaw among others. Exploring possible rhythms and acknowledge in them the power of dialogue between ourselves and our human cultures is the main challenge.

OUR WORK


INSTRMNTS is a series of multiplayer musical instruments, inspired by nature, designed with passion and made to enable the creative process in music.

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

Toha was inspired by the nests of sociable weavers, birds that inhabit the deserts of southern Africa. It can be played by two musicians sitting facing each other. Each musician has a set of strings with the same scale on each side of the instrument.

SHARING


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.’
