SAM2 by Scrap Arts Music

Discipline: Music
Homebase: Victoria
Languages: English, French

SAM2 by Scrap Arts Music re-invents do-it-yourself musical performance from the ground up with a creative, kid-friendly and eco-positive mandate. Thrown-away material becomes the foundation for a new generation of sound and visual discovery. Unforgettable power-percussion is the result. Scrap Arts Music transforms scrap into art and arts into music.


A wonderful performance, fit in nicely with the Earth Day activities, many classes have also made their own rhythm instruments. We all liked how the group involved students from our school in the performance. Stephen Arnold, 108 Mile Elementary

SAM2 features the musicians, sculptural instruments and original music from Scrap Arts Music's international touring productions, customized for presentation in school gyms. Using instruments crafted from salvaged and recycled materials, expect a fast-paced show built around re-imagined exhaust hoses, artillery shells and recycled metals. We introduce students to green ingenuity, creativity and excellence. We perform excerpts from our hit show and embellish them with an educational "scrap" instrument overview and our ever-popular student participation.
