Roll up, roll up, roll up for the most ginormous, magical, spectacular musical coconut shy in the world!
The Sonic Balloon is a fun, interactive musical installation incorporating music technology, multi-instrumental composition, five three-foot helium balloons, and buckets upon buckets of balls. You, the audience are invited to take over the orchestra; hit a balloon to conduct instruments in and out, altering texture, dynamic and instrumentation of an original 9 minute miniature symphony of brass, strings, piano, guitars and drums.
This piece was created in the UK by Timothy Tate, musician and composer in collaboration with Jay Harrison electromechanical music technologist, commissioned by LLAWN Arts Weekend 2016.
No rehearsal, practise or musical expertise required . . . Step right this way and let the fun and music commence!
