Inuksuit An Outdoor Percussion Experience

Participating Artist: Toolbox Percussion

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

The first session seeks to prepare the ears, where participants will learn to identify the sounds of various percussion instruments and listen sounds of the surroundings.

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

  • This workshop will be conducted in Cantonese
  • Participant is required to walk around various locations outdoors. Please assess your physical condition if it is suitable for participation
  • Comfortable clothing is recommended
  • Please arrange lunch on your own during the 2-hour break between two sessions of the workshop
