Spread Art says
Build & play your very own Linguaphone of Tremulous Communion at the Intimate Instruments Workshop! Instrument kits are free, a $10 suggested donation for entry will cover our material costs.

The Linguaphone of Tremulous Communion is a musical instrument that cannot be heard by an audience. It is specifically for two players, who face each other and bite down on the opposing ends to play. Vibrations flow through the teeth, using each player’s nasal cavities as a resonant chamber. The instrument’s tones are acutely (sometimes painfully) audible to players, but not bystanders.

Workshop participants - either alone or in pairs - will get a Linguaphone kit, instructions, and collaborative help in customizing and building their instrument. Instrument building takes approximately 20 minutes, and is kid-friendly. A communal (optional) performance will follow the workshop.

This work has been supported in part by a residency with Spread Art; a residency at Maker Works Ann Arbor; and a project grant from New Music USA.
