Aquacoustique: Concerto in Sea Major

As part of PIFA 2016, French group Aquacoustique bring their one-of- a-kind performance of Concerto in Sea Majorto Penn Museum’s Stoner Courtyard Fountain. The group’s three musicians, Jean- Philippe Carde, Florent Lalet, and Stephane Gratteau, use found and recycled objects to create aqua-instruments for this whimsical performance that will take place in some of Philadelphia’s best fountains. Performing belly-deep in water, Aquacoustique transforms snorkels into flutes and watering cans into saxophones, among other ingenious creations—including using water itself as a musical and rhythmic instrument—helping audiences to discover another side of the precious element.
