Come and work with London sound artist Robert Cervera to create a sculptural and musical wind instrument to play. You will make the instrument from tubing, and learn how to produce sounds which will be recorded and sampled to support a future sound piece. No previous musical experience is necessary. Places are limited to 20 people per session – you only need to book on one session. In order for this project to be successful, we need everyone to attend on the day in your allocated time slot. It’s only together that we can make this work!
This is a family-friendly workshop suitable for ages 7 years and up. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. If you are a parent or carer you only need to book a place for those taking part, but you are welcome to also take part in the session on the day.
Robert Cervera is a London-based interdisciplinary artist born in Barcelona. He studied music at the Professional Conservatoire in Badalona (Spain) and graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Sculpture in 2014. His work includes sculpture, installation, video and music, with a strong interest in materiality and our relation to it. He also builds tube structures that can be played as instruments. The sounds they produce form the basis of musical compositions, music coding and live performances.
He has recently performed in the UK (Ikon Gallery, Birmingham; Iklectik, London; Danielle Arnaud Gallery, London; all 2023) and in Spain (Eufonic Festival, 2022). He has shown extensively in the UK, Denmark, Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal and Mexico.
