Sound Garden with Ben Gates

Kids' Camp

‘Part Dr. Seuss, a touch of Heath Robinson and a dollop of garden shed inspiration, he invents his own musical instruments.

They can be blown, pulled, peddled, wound up and even powered by bellows.’

With twenty years of development, Ben Gates has made his own unique twist on giant percussion and interactive sound sculpture. Focusing on accessible fun musical interventions for all the family. Ben has installed permanent instruments in public parks and schools whilst continuing to deliver inspirational music making workshops for festivals and communities.

Come and join Ben with his latest sessional musical interventions for some harmonic grooving and cosmic jamming.
