Join pyka at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff where we will be hosting an interactive installation and research exhibition for members of the public to come and play with our new series of digital instruments - The Expression Orchestra. 

The Expression Orchestra has been designed in response to a wide variety of needs and abilities and features 3 unique control mechanisms: multi-touch, eye-tracking, and motion-tracking. These digital instruments aim to encourage the appreciation of simplicity, remove the barrier of complexity, and place the power of creative expression back in the hands of everyone, irrespective of their musical experience or physical abilities. 

The Expression Orchestra was developed in collaboration with Ty Gwyn Special School, Riverbank Primary, and Woodlands High School - a federation of ALN schools in South Wales who worked with us to explore MOVEMENT, SOUND, and VISUAL creativity to inform the development of these new expressive digital instruments. The creative results of these collaborative explorations will also be on display across 3 project exhibitions situated around the ground floor at Chapter Arts Centre.

Members of the pyka team will be in residence at Chapter for the entire duration of the exhibition to provide guided tours of the research exhibitions, as well as demonstrations and talks on The Expression Orchestra. Tours and talks accommodated on request. Please contact pyka for more information.

The Expression Orchestra is the result of a project everyone project, funded by the Arts Council of Wales through the CLTTA Creative Collaborations fund.
