2022 Summer Program

Marbles can make music, marbles can tell stories using movement and sound. Playing with marbles helps us embark on a musical journey of our own making. Join our marble musicians to create music making mazes that you design and compose to your own liking. Taking inspiration from the “audiokinetic” ball machines of artist and sculptor George Rhoads, you will make rhythms with unlikely instruments, inventing unpredictable cadence and tempo.
