Sound art picnic in the Künstlerdorf Schöppingen

Drums, monster flutes, water instruments and tubular bells – sound art to join in with the whole family at the sound art picnic organised by the Landesmusikakademie NRW and Künstlerdorf Schöppingen. Current and former scholarship holders presented works inspired by sound art in the buildings of the artists’ village: Aurélie Pertusot with “La Boucle est bouclée #2” and the performance “Erosion“ (1-3), Sophia Bauer – “A Conspiration: Breathing Choir“ (7) and Hanna Melnykova, who combines sound and photography in a novel way with “Sounds of the Universe“ (8-10). The music play actions “KlangKanal“ and “Wasser-Orchester“ (4-6) by Michael Bradke are aimed at people from 2 years to old age and created a musical open-air landscape on the grounds of the artists’ village. With the Mobile Music Workshop Münsterland, all generations could try their hand at building instruments from everyday materials and try them out directly. The percussion quartet Altenberge (11-12) offered sound refreshment in between with groovy pieces. Picnic baskets were ready…

The event was also suitable for people with visual impairments and blind people.
