Two workshop sessions aimed at youngsters and adults, devoted to the magical world of invented, found and homemade musical instruments. Hosted by Phil Dadson (left) and Adrian Croucher (mid-right), of NZ’s legendary From Scratch group, the workshops will introduce a wide range of DIY instrument ideas for exploration and development.
Participants will be introduced to an inspiring mix of instrument ideas and basic acoustic principles, with a range of surprising and sometimes familiar sound-making materials and sonic objects. Families welcome.
Designed essentially for youngsters, participants will be guided through the making of one or more simple DIY instruments demonstrated in Workshop#1. They will also have the opportunity to play together as a group and take one or more completed instruments away with them.
