Children’s Instrument Making Workshop with Thomas Truax
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
£7.00 adv (1 x child and 1 x adult)
Would you like to create your own Sister Spinster or HORNICATOR?? Thomas Truax (pronounced troo-aks) is an American singer/musician, inventor and multi-media artist. This April he will be delivering an instrument making workshop in the Tin Community Space.
One of the most imaginative characters on the pop music fringe, since the year 2000 Thomas has been traveling the world performing with his evolving “band” of bizarre self-made Harry Partch-esque instruments including a motorized drum machine made of bike wheels called ‘Mother Superior’ and a pimped-up Dr. Seuss-ian Gramophone called ‘The Hornicator’, as well as his venerable resonator guitar ‘Hank’. Time Out magazine has dubbed him “The king of home-made instruments” while Splendid magazine called him “one of the five or ten best singer/songwriters in the world that you’ve never heard of…an exceptional talent, unique and resistant to comparison, yet fairly accessible even to casual listeners.”
