THIS WEEK AT THE STUDIO
JJ and Your Boy Oblach of Array Records recorded a thought provoking spoken word piece, on the topic of Museums, Kenyan culture, and colonialism. Make sure you check out JJ this friday afternoon, she's performing at the National Museum as part of the extended "Invisible Inventories" exhibit.
Museum Day was last week and Santuri presented its first ever interactive installation! As part of Invisible Inventories, we invited visitors to create their own beats using virtual instruments from East Africa. Using the Push 2 and Santuri’s East African Instrument Pack for Ableton, friends, strangers and even dignitaries experimented live, with the sounds of Ohangla drums (Kenya), the Zeze (Tanzania), the Adungu and the Endere (Uganda). It was fun, so we'll probably do it again next week!
