Musicians show to the audience how sounds can be produced on everyday objects that lay around us and can be used to create music. The current program is called Life of Things.

The concert can be also performed in an adapted form for children audience (in schools, children venues and festivals) and can continue with a workshop. There, participants can build their own simple but effective musical instruments from the recycled materials.
