Gama radiates music
Exhibitions and performances by Cass MA by Project student Victor Gama were curated by Yinka Shonibare at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden as part of the Deloitte Ignite Festival.
His ’Instrumentos Exhibition’ provided a space where visitors were encouraged to actively engage and interact with the work on display. The exhibition effectively transformed turn the Paul Hamlin Hall into a performance space and its visitors into performers. The works included a collection of over thirty pieces including musical instruments, sound devices and sound installations.
Visitors were asked to participate in recordings throughout the show and an educational program offered workshops for all age groups, talks, games and performances.
Victor’s final project for the MA by Project (Music Technology), involved optimizing the design of two new musical instruments he has created, the toha and the acrux, refining their tuning systems and their acoustic behaviour. The instruments will be exhibited at the MA Show 2012 from 14th to 17th September at Central House. You can read more about his work here.
