Description

Summer means festival fun in the sun! Four large, standalone MMM sound sculptures and orchestral apparatuses make their way around the the world every summer.

These huge sound sculptures encourage collaborative music making, with many of the instruments only able to produce sound when several participants work together at once – just as most music is often a “collective societal sculpture” produced through teamwork.


H2Orchestra:

Play with the sounds of water, wet and wild. 25 tubs with instruments like swim drums, water organs, dive gongs, splish and splash piano, bubble tub …


Tontubes:

the mobile musical construction site – from the underground! 30 drums, 2 slam organs, 3 helipipipers, monster flutes and tubular bells made from sewer piping.


Metallofone:

The multifunctional orchestral apparatus for a heavy metal bang. 25 meters of frames with reycled car parts, tuned chimes and cowbells or all kind of found objects from metal.

Giants:

The Orchestra of Giants consists of humongous musical instruments that offer a basic introduction to the physics of sound and the way musical instruments are constructed. They allow participants to explore how factors such as length, tension and the resonant materials used to make an instrument affect its pitch and sound quality.


The MobileMusicMuseum can offer a fully tailored experience for all generations combing live performance and hands on acitivities like DIY-instrument building.
