About the Book
When is a bike also a musical instrument? What sound does a Gamelan make? How can you make sound visible? Visit the ArtStarts Gallery and be immersed in an exciting sonic experience. Sound Play is an interactive exhibition exploring music, acoustics, composition and sound-making, featuring installations and artwork by students from across BC and by professional artists working with young people. Pedal sound-making bikes, listen to original songs, experiment with a cymasium and more. Connect with your own rhythm as you explore multi-instrumentalist Boris Sichon's global collection of musical instruments from around the world. Come play with us!
Sound Play was an exhibition of young people's art at the ArtStarts Gallery in Vancouver, BC, Canada, from September 28, 2013 to March 29, 2014. This book documents the exhibition.
The ArtStarts Gallery is the first in Canada devoted exclusively to young people's art. Since the gallery opened in 2006, our exhibitions have celebrated the exciting artwork that emerges when students, educators and professional artists work together to deepen learning, creativity and community connections.
