OpenAir: H2Orchestra

The wet-and-wild musical event of the summer - a generational dialogue between young and old. 25 water-instruments combine sience, sound exploration, music and lots of fun: Waterorgans, Splish and Splash Pianos, Dive-Gongs, BubbleTub, Swimming Drums and many more.

Wasserorchester / Water Orchestra

See: http://www.musikaktionen.de/en/open-air/h2orchestra/ for more info

The H2Orchestra is a hands-on musical activity for up to 50 people aged 2 and up. Its communicative process of water music composition brings together people of all ages, encouraging multigenerational dialogue. The H2Orchestra consists of more than 50 instruments in 25 tubs plus mechanical apparatuses that make water sounds or use water to produce sound.

Some of the instruments are housed in metal sculptures created by art apparatus craftsman Stefan Schilling.

As players explore them side by side and across from each other, the collection of instruments encourages cooperative sound experimentation and musical interaction.
