The Rig is a structural interactive installation that combines percussion, creativity, musical exploration, visual stimulation, learning and adventure. Designed by professional musicians with a combined musical experience of over 20 years, The Rig is an impressive, original and creative sound scape of percussion with an exciting visual impact aimed at kids from 1 to 100 years old!!
The Rig combines vintage instruments made from every day items recycled, altered and adjusted to form crazy inventions with unusual sounds. It explores the physics behind sound with coloured water to show vibrations from a water gong, a tin bath amplifier and string earphones. The aim of this is to encourage musical creativity and rhythmic adventure through the stimulating and thrilling medium of percussion.
It can be played from all angles allowing interactive musical compositions to be created with participants. The Rig promotes awareness about recycling and re use of everyday objects that are often thrown away, whilst encouraging creativity with the use of not-so-usual objects turned into instruments!
The Rig can be used as an interesting, fun and interactive installation within festivals, schools or corporate functions. Within the context of learning and education, it can be combined with our bespoke workshops that focus on fun and creativity within music.
