Arraymusic – Evergreen Community Gamelan
All workshops are 1 to 4pm unless otherwise noted at
Array Space 155 Walnut Ave.
Toronto, M6J 3W3
Have a seat and immediately join in the music making. These are fun, hands-on Meet Ups that bring people together to play beautiful Indonesian instruments. We play the Gamelan Instruments used in the recording of the soundtrack for Life of Pi (music by Mychael Danna). Along with these we sometimes play a huge collection of percussion instruments including gongs, bowls, vibes, marimba, drums, djembe, congas, bells, chimes, shells and more.
Every note sounds just right and fires the imagination. Whether you want to meditate and dream or create grooves that move, it’s fun and enthralling and anyone can do it. (there’s a park right outside to visit and hang out as well). In existence for 40 years, Arraymusic and the Evergreen Club Gamelan has graciously donated these instruments for use by the community on a regular basis. Bring your friends. Meet new ones.
