Stringed, Sculpture Meets Music

Support needed to make this wonderful idea a reality

Share

"Stringed" Sculpture Meets Music, is an exhibition that is planned to be held in 2018 at Space Gallery in Whanganui. This exhibition is an interactive collection of sculptural instruments I have made over the past 3 years. The exhibition will not only showcase a number of fully functional sculptural stringed instruments but many will be interactive and recorded. The plan also is to hold at least 2 instrument making workshops during the exhibition.

 

This Exhibition is the halfway mark for a larger vision which may take another 3 years to complete. The overall concept is that I create 10 guitars with each guitar having an extra string compared to the previous one. So far I have made a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 stringed instruments, plus other experimental ones. When I reach the 10 Stringed instrument I will then invite 10 musicians to choose an instrument and explore its possibilities. I will then start the process of video and sound recording 3 pieces of music inspired from different themes. After which I would like to turn this concept into a stage performance.
