PLAY, LISTEN AND SHARE
an exhibition that allows visitors to experience the beauty and complexity of music in a multisensory environment. Reminiscent of John Cage’s theater of music, the exhibition presents a topography of music through sound, sight, and touch, encouraging visitors to actively play, listen and share their musical discoveries.
At our music workshops, participants are guided through a hands-on experience with simple instructions on how to play the instruments. The workshops encourage play and interaction through games and rhythm patterns. Our instruments are designed to be collaborative, allowing up to four musicians to play together at once.
INSTRMNTS exhibitions feature live performances that bring their innovative musical instruments to life. These concerts take place in both gallery spaces and concert halls, providing audiences with a unique and dynamic musical experience. In addition to solo performances, INSTRMNTS also collaborates with local artists to create dynamic and collaborative musical experiences that engage audiences in new and exciting ways. By working with local artists, INSTRMNTS is able to showcase the diversity and depth of musical talent in each community, while also creating opportunities for cross-cultural exchange and artistic collaboration.

INSTALLATION, CHANGE SOMETHING
Acruxson is a unique and innovative sound installation that showcases the latest acrux family. The installation is accompanied by a cutting-edge app, called Acrux Seasons, which is built on the concept of the acrux. This app has been developed through a collaborative effort between a team of experienced developers and a group of imaginative schoolchildren from Wales, UK.

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.
Aquarium Materialis for GigantikArpz and electronics was written by Victor Gama and Pedro Carneiro for the Next Future Festival of Contemporary Arts and Culture in 2011, at the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon. The piece is performed in two movements, one during the day and another at night. The GigantikArpz has been installed earlier at the Earagail Arts Festival in Ireland, the Serralves Foundation’s Serralves em Festa in Porto and other major open air venues.
Unique projects and collaborations over the last two decades have driven the development of these fascinating instruments and music. A collaboration with Kronos Quartet had its world premiere at Carnegie Hall in New York and its European premiere at Centro Cultural de Belém in Lisbon.
We are a team committed to sharing the new generation of musical instruments.
