Today all sounds belong to
a continuous field of possibilities lying within the dominion of music.
Behold the new orchestra: the sonic universe!
And the musicians:
anyone and anything
that sounds!

R. M. Shafer, The Tuning of the World, 1977

Who says you have to buy a musical instrument to play music? L’Orchestra RIUSOnica is a creative workshop on building musical instruments out of recycled materials: bins, broom handles, cans and pipes will become guitars, violins, saxophones, drums, snares, shakers and bells, creating a large orchestra. The aim is to sharpen sensitivity and attention to sound, its peculiarities and meanings, using music as a means to work on imagination and creativity, learning new forms of expression and communication, developing the willingness and ability to creatively reuse what we normally consider to be waste.

The workshop is open to all people between the ages of 6 and 99, for a maximum of 20 participants; children from 6 to 8 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

Workshop schedules:
July 8 from 5 to 7pm – Fiume Marecchia (Ingresso Mutonia).
July 9, 10 and 11 from 5 to 7pm – Piazza Ganganelli.

Final performance:
July 11 at 7.30pm – Piazza Ganganelli.

Cost of the workshop: 10€.

Attendance is mandatory (on every date of the workshop).
