About Event

What should participants expect?

A sonic experience to inspire your creative response to live music!

Drop in between 11am - 4.30pm for a series of sessions throughout the day where different musicians will join us in playing improvisation over an underlying instrumental piece created by NEONE The Wonderer. 

We invite you to listen and respond to the sounds. There will be a variety of materials available for you to choose from and get creative with. 

You might interpret what you hear or feel through drawing, making your own rhythms or dance - anything goes. 

This will be a relaxed space, there is no wrong or right way to take part, it’s an invitation to explore your imagination and self expression, or just be.

Connect with yourselves, and each other, through music and creativity.
