a.P.A.t.T. at World Museum, Liverpool FREE!
On Saturday 14th August 2010, inimitable musical magpies a.P.A.t.T. will be performing a specially composed piece at Liverpool’s World Museum, using instruments from the museum’s collection of ancient artefacts.
As part of National Museums Liverpool’s ‘DIY Music Day’, a.P.A.t.T. have been commissioned to compose the piece using instruments from vastly distinct cultures from around the world, combining the sounds to create a pan-global soundscape that will echo through the World Museum’s atrium at various points throughout the day.
Among the instruments involved in the performance are:
The Balinese Gender – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gend%C3%A9r
The Javanese Saron Barung – http://www.seasite.niu.edu/Indonesian/Budaya_Bangsa/Gamelan/Javanese_Gamelan/metallophones/saron.htm
The Chinese Daruan (bass Ruan) – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruan
The West Africa Balaphone – http://www.coraconnection.com/pages/balaphone.html
As well as a.P.A.t.T.’s contribution, DIY Music Day will also see local musicians such as Noise Club and members of Monobrow and the International creating music throughout the World Museum, in different locations and using different objects from the museum’s collection.
