CréaSon

Discipline: Music
Homebase: Quebec
Languages: English, French

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!

Creative, entertaining and participative. Students could work on the project to create a musical prototype and bring them to the Eco-Logical Show! Give your children the unique opportunity to meet the musician-designers of the Eco-Logical Show! The participants will benefit from the assistance and advice from the expert of reinvented percussion while providing a creative "environmusical" effort! CréaSon aims to promote young people's musical creativity and increase their self-esteem by promoting persistence in school and their environmental beliefs: Save the planet!
