Orchestra of Objects Presents an Interactive music workshop

Sunday 16 February 2020

10.00am - 11.00am

Part Dr Seuss a, touch of Heath Robinson and a dollop of garden shed inspiration. I invent my own musical instruments. Tooting, whistling, plinking and parping gizmos, inspired by a wasteland of unwanted industrial objects.

Come and meet the ‘Pump-a-Phone’, ‘Grass-Xylo-Hopper’, and ‘Twisty-Bata-Drum’ among other creations in this fun sound and sculpture workshop. One can simply go and check this to know more about the music.


Building Sound Sculptures 

A hands-on making workshop using prepared sets of recycled plastic pipes of all sizes and colours. They can be easily plumbed and connected together creating big colourful structures (a bit like giant K’NEX). And there’s more! As well exploring the sounds of pipes PARP! PARP!!! TRUMP! TRUMP! BUZZ BUZZ! WHIZZZZ!!! I will also bring along all kinds of different materials that can be added to the sculptures. Wheels, pumps, whistles, whizzers, spanners and just about anything that we can experiment on. This workshop lets children explore their lateral thinking and offers them a chance to work as a team on building something big and experiment with sound. So come on down and get building your  ZOOM! ZOOM!, DING! DING! KA BOOM! Creations ! (The Sculptures are not for keeping)
