Musical Playground

Wanna play some funky experimental instruments? Well, you’re in luck! Publik Secrets, a Vancouver based art collective, is creating a musical installation at the Olympic Plaza. These instruments are made from recyclable materials and draw inspiration from inventors such as Harry Partch and the Baschet Brothers. The musical playground is the perfect spot for hands-on play and improvisational fun with everyday objects and sound.
