Toy Laboratory – How to play the instrument of tomorrow?

How much play is involved in music making? In connection with music and instruments, we use the verb “to play” (and not “to work”): to play the clarinet, cello, piano. If there is to be playing in music, is an instrument a toy?

In the project “toy laboratory”, ensemble recherche searches for the playful nature of music, explores game movements and rules and plays newly developed musical instruments.
