Workshop for budding musicians
BUDDING musicians who want the chance to make music with their biscuit tins will finally get the chance at a creative event this week.
Cardboard keyboards and tin pot synthesizers will be the order of the day on Thursday, thanks to a collaboration between an unlikely mix of musicians, electronic engineers and games designers.
The Festival of Improbable Instruments will be the latest cultural event organised by the team atWeave — a community creative project based at Abertay University.
An all-day workshop at the Vision building from 10am-3.30pm will give would-be composers the opportunity to craft their instruments, under the watchful tutelage of composer and orchestra director Luci Holland and games and arts lecturers Yann Seznec and Niall Moody.
All of t he electronic components, wires and materials will be provided on the day, but attendees to the festival — which is free — will be required to bring their laptops.
