Build your own instrument, use cutting edge technology to capture and remix your environment, smash together the worlds of digital and physical creativity as part of pyka’s cross-collaborative Acrux Seasons project.

pyka have teamed up with Chapter to bring you a week of fantastically fun and wholly creative half term workshops. Every afternoon from the 19th to the 23rd February, you will be able to drop in and participate in a series of creative activities. These will include:

— Instrument building with everyday materials.
— Learning how to use pyka_loop to hunt for sounds and to remix the world around you.
— Recording and remixing your own spontaneous music compositions using unique instruments built by you!

How did this all come about? Well we're glad you asked! In 2016, digital artists, pyka and instrument inventor Victor Gama, teamed up with six Welsh schools to create a digital version of one of Victor’s instruments — The Acrux. The project required everyone involved to reimagine the relationships between digital and physical instruments. They drew from the tangible beauty of the real world and the limitless potential of the digital world and explored ways of helping the two get along that little bit better.

pyka now want to delve deeper into these worlds by creatively exploring instruments in both physical and digital mediums and want as many people as possible along for the ride!

So whether you’re a virtuoso, a serial foot tapper, or just want to make lots of noise, we will very much look forward to seeing you there!

This project has been made possible through funding by The Arts Council of Wales.
