Inuksuit An Outdoor Percussion Experience

Nature provides the materials for this workshop curated by Toolbox Percussion, who took the idea from John Luther Adams’ Inuksuit, a nature-inspired piece performed by multiple percussion players dispersed among a natural site, creating a truly magical soundscape.

In the workshop, the themes of wind, birdsongs and waves will be explored.

The first of the two sessions seeks to prepare the ears, where students will learn to identify the sounds of various percussion instruments and build their own ones.

The second takes place in the outdoors and encourages deep listening. In a park or the woods, students will gather leaves, branches and materials to complete their instruments, and engage in a dialogue with nature through a special performance.
