CréaSon is the brain child of Sylvain Grenier, a musician with boundless imagination for whom the vast choice of existing instruments was not enough. Out of hockey sticks, car wheels, cans, pans and golf equipment, he made "xylo-hockeys", "cans o' fun", "pans o' fun" and "golfuns" to create new sounds. CréaSon's environmentally focused approach to percussion instruments encourages children to explore their creativity and musicality through found objects and repurposed materials. Together we can save the planet!
