The Musical Botanist

Posted by Nicolas Lewis Category: Projects

The Musical Botanist is a new 154 Collective show in which we turn plants into musical instruments that anyone can play …

We began development for this show back in February with a trip to the garden centre and a box full of wires!

I worked with Hayley Youell and Dan Mallaghan to create this musical market stall crammed full of singing and beat boxing plants.

The first outing for the Musical Botanist was a beautifully sunny Bradford Festival. We had a constant stream of visitors to our hilltop location and spent the whole of the two days performing, jamming, and creating flower music with festival goers.

There are more outings of the Musical Botanist planned for the next few months, with further dates in the pipeline for next year. So follow 154 Collective or me on twitter to get updates on future shows.
