Wires Strings & Other Things

Wires, Strings & Other Things is new music show composed by Brian Irvine and directed by Wouter Van Music Network and The Ark present a new music show for ages 6+ conceived and created by Brian Irvine and Wouter Van Looy.

In Wires, Strings & Other Things, Ed can usually be found in a corner, building unusual electronic instruments, tinkering with his own world of sound. Andreea plays the viola beautifully and reads complicated sheets of music as if they were fairy tales. And James? Well, James wanders a labyrinth of sound like an explorer, connecting and disrupting with his bass clarinet as he goes.

Anything can happen as they find each other and start to invent music together. What stories will they share when, with your help, they explore the magic and mystery of how to compose, perform and improvise?

WIRES, STRINGS & OTHER THINGS is a music performance that encourages you to always be curious. To listen, respond to and communicate through the sounds, music and stories that are all around you – wherever you are and whoever you are with.
