Exhibition: Exhibition: Intimate Instruments Workshop

Preview reilly linguaphone 001

Faculty member Chris Reilly will be presenting the Intimate Instruments Workshop on October 3rd, 2015, participants are invited to build and play their very own Linguaphone of Tremulous Communion. The Linguaphone of Tremulous Communion is a musical instrument that cannot be heard by an audience. It is specifically for two players, who face each other and bite down on the opposing ends to play. Vibrations flow through the teeth, using each player’s nasal cavities as a resonant chamber. The instrument’s tones are acutely (sometimes painfully) audible to players, but not bystanders. Workshop participants – either alone or in pairs – will receive a Linguaphone kit, instructions, and collaborative help in customizing and building their instrument. A communal performance will follow the workshop.
