What distinguishes Scrap Arts Music from the rest?
Scrap Arts Music IS innovation, energy and rhythmically rich sound.
If you want a positive, adrenaline-laced experience – Scrap Arts Music is your ticket!
Rooted in a “GREEN” sensibility, Scrap Arts Music demonstrates the value of giving second thought to throwing things away. Suddenly the sonic and visual potential of unexpected materials takes root, as expansive creative thinking is stimulated.
With Scrap Arts Music, “Music meets Athleticism”. World-class musicians with strong athletic histories put that excellence to use in performances. Percussion is the most physical of the instruments after all. Experience the sound when imaginative percussionists play stringed and wind instruments.
Scrap Arts Music is CREATIVE from the bottom up: ORIGINAL music composed for over 145 tune-able instruments INVENTED by artistic director Gregory Kozak. Beautiful sounding, sculptural and mobile – one of a kind! Performance is CHOREOGRAPHED to incorporate high-energy movement that expresses the POWER of music and the unique talents of five of Canada’s most impressive multi-instrumentalists.
Humorous moments are peppered throughout Kozak’s sophisticated, seriously conceived and nuanced percussion ensemble music.
When you think of Scrap Arts Music, think ‘SIMPLY’ SPECTACULAR… programmers from around the world do!
