This was the first gig that we had been booked for that wasn’t from our little black book of contacts. We were so excited that the word was getting out there about our musical junk percussion installation and that The V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green, London had asked us to come and spend the day at their childhood festival.
We had an amazing time there and entertained over 1,500 children during one day. We had some cracking little players who loved playing on The Rig and we got to début the massive bunches of keys. The kids loved playing these and thinking up what door it could open. Castles and treasure chests featured highly on the list! Have a look at the photos of the day here and do let us know what you think the bunch of keys open!
In this video, you can see Becky explaining the oven tray earphones. It really is quite amazing the sound that is produced by them. Your body acts as an amplifier and resonates the sound all the way round your body. As you can see, it is a great one for drawing grandparents and parents in to play and discovering the delights of making music out of unusual items.
