Free, and accepts optional pay-what-you-may donations for admission.

Music can be used to generate interest in science, just as science can inspire new approaches to music. Using home-made instruments and humor, Andy demonstrates technology in music, scientific principles of sound, recycling in action, and even transforms a spoon into a guitar! Volunteers experience digital looping and beatboxing, chanted rhythms, Lego theremin, and other amazing inventions inspired by instruments from Africa and Asia. A wonderfully fun testament to recycling and multiculturalism!

Find two performances at the ArtStarts Gallery at 11am and 1pm. Suitable for children 8 and under but all are welcome.
