World of Winter | Trumpet Flowers

Sunday, January 23 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 pm

A large outdoor installation brought to you in partnership with Amigo & Amigo based in Australia.
You can’t help but feel you are shrinking as you approach these super-sized trumpet flowers. Tentatively stepping inside some unseen Giant’s musical garden, you become surrounded by an explosive and immersive jungle of light, color and sound. Moving in and around the flower forest uncovers a deeper connection with their individual trumpet key controllers, interactive keys that allow you to play each flower as a 2-6m towering musical and light instrument.
Make your own spectacular floral symphony of sound and light or catch one of the scheduled animated musical scores throughout the evening. Inspired by vintage gramophones, Trumpet Flowers will shock and surprise as the entire world periodically bursts to life and plays its own commissioned musical score: a piece composed and played by Otis Studio and some of Sydney’s finest Jazz musicians. Every tuba, trumpet, trombone and drum sound in Trumpet Flowers’ repertoire is an individual live recorded and energetic moment at your fingertips to experiment with.
This public art installation is one of many during the 2022 #WorldOfWinterGR festival.
