MUSIC AND CREATIVITY
INSTRMNTS is a touring exhibition that brings to life innovative multiplayer musical instruments and captivating sound installations. With workshops and live performances, the exhibition invites audiences to participate in a playful journey of musical creativity, introducing participants to new and unique instruments such as the toha, acrux, tahra, tipaw, uana and many others. Our primary goal is to foster a collective exploration of music-making, underscoring the profound impact of cultural exchange and communication through the universal language of music.
Our exhibition offers visitors of all ages the opportunity to play with original instruments, participate in engaging workshops, enjoy concerts and performances, take part in musical games, and attend informative talks. We have also designed an educational program specifically for children from local schools, providing them with hands-on learning experiences.
Bring your vision to life with our custom design services. We specialize in designing and fabricating unique musical instruments and sound installations tailored to your specific needs, whether it be for a permanent exhibition, a museum, educational program, recreational facility, a park, or for a special project for composers or ensembles.
The acrux is a unique musical instrument that takes inspiration from the Southern Cross constellation, visible only in the night sky of the southern hemisphere. The design of the acrux reflects the configuration of this constellation, with each part symbolizing a specific aspect. The circular, vibrating lamellae symbolize the orbits of imaginary planets around the stars of the Southern Cross. The acrux captures the beauty and wonder of the night sky, bringing it to life through music.
Introducing UANA, a musical instrument designed for collaborative music-making. With the ability to accommodate up to four musicians, UANA is ideal for educational programs and engaging young people in the art of music. The Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences of West Virginia in Charleston, USA has one installed in their state-of-the-art music studio, providing a unique opportunity for musicians to explore new sounds and compositions.
Tipaw, one of the four contemporary musical instruments commissioned by the National Museums of Scotland in Edinburgh, is a unique creation inspired by the rumors of a Bengal tiger roaming the museum after escaping from the local Zoo. Its name, a play on words combining “tiger” and “paw,” reflects the instrument’s feline influence. To play Tipaw, up to four musicians strike the lower portion of the inverted singing bowls, producing a gentle yet sustained sound reminiscent of a tiger silently moving through the forest.
‘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.’
