Supersonic Kids Gig

Our annual programme of big sounds for little people returns! These Supersonic Kids Gigs act as an introduction to experimental music for children and their families. Taking place on Friday May 30th in the foyer of Symphony Hall , kicking off at 10:30am. This is a free event and recommended for children under 10 and their families.

Leading this Kids Gig is artist Sarah Kenchington who makes, designs and adapts acoustic musical instruments. She performs on a semi mechanical pedal

powered orchestra, designed to be slightly beyond her control, creating a mixture of dirty noise and plaintive almost tuneful melodies.

As well as her solo performances Sarah has performed and recorded with a range of musicians from Glasgow’s vibrant experimental music scene including Daniel Padden, Mark Vernon and Luke Fowler. She also builds large scale instruments and installations, including ‘Wind Pipes’ for Edinburgh art festival, made from salvaged church organ pipes. And ‘Sound House’ for Modern Art Oxford, an instrument made from a house.
