This experiential music workshop invites children into Takis’ visual and auditory world, acquainting them with his musical sculptures and encouraging them to interact with them.
The children are introduced to concepts like magnetism, sound, frequency, energy, electromagnetic fields, vibration and oscillation through play and experimentation.
We explore contemporary art, note its shapes and materials, observe the relationship between sound and its surroundings, discover how “strings, spheres, gears and antennae” can create music.
We express ourselves through musical games and organized musical-kinetic activities, activate ourselves emotionally, understand the value of working together in a - musical - group, become music creators ourselves, are inspired by and play in Takis’ magnetic environment.
Following the emotional-cognitive stages of child development, the workshop invites children aged 5 - 8 to participate actively across the full spectrum of its activities and explore the combining of art and science through the works of Takis, one of the 20th century’s most innovative contemporary artists, and the games they play with the senses.
