Port Theatre welcomes ScrapArtsMusic

With instruments fashioned from industrial scrap and offbeat materials, ScrapArtsMusic’s original music is truly striking

NANAIMO — Talk about taking recycling to a whole new level. The Canadian-based ScrapArtsMusic creates music from materials, ranging from artillery shells and planks of wood right through to rubber tubes and balloons.

The result is musical magic and and the earth friendly musicians will be at the Port Theatre in Nanaimo Sat., Feb. 11 at 7:30 p.m.

Ever heard of junk-on-a-stick?

What about an annoyaphone?

Is the sigh-chordian familiar to you?

These are only but a few of the creative names that ScrapArtsMusic Creative Director, Gregory Kozak, has come up with for his whimsical musical instruments.

ScrapArtsMusic promises to excite the senses with intricate rhythms, raw energy, athletic choreography and the greenest  — and most inventive — reuse of materials on stage today.

With instruments fashioned from industrial scrap and offbeat materials, ScrapArtsMusic’s original music is as visually striking as it is sonically riveting.

ScrapArtsMusic was nominated in 2002 for a West Coast Music Award in the category of Best Live Performance and has been traveling the world ever since.

Athleticism, invention, and mind-blowing sound come together in the innovative show. The sheer physical energy of the company is extraordinary, and the power with which they go through their paces is enough to leave one feeling utterly exhausted – but there is also humour, wit and genuine subtlety to satisfy the most jaded musical palette.

Opening for ScrapArtsMusic is Aaron Gregg, the Stunt Superstar who will be showcasing a perfect blend of mind-blowing tricks and inventive comedy. Greg’s performance combines technical ability, dangerous props, and intelligent humour that’s clean enough for a church group but remains edgy enough for a university crowd.
