Made of Imagination / Rich Aucoin

Last week we launched our “Made of Imagination” project with MTV, our biggest collaboration yet! In case you forgot already or didn’t see the original post, we wanna see who can make the most creative homemade instruments on the planet, and we’d love to see videos of you and your friends performing with them!

We’re also asking some emerging Canadian musicians to do the same kinda thing! The video above is the first of four that we’ve produced, and it features rising star Rich Aucoin.

Ready to make your own instruments???

Read the full project instructions here.

Get inspired here.

    Awesome, great to see Rich getting this kind of exposure.

    • he is great! i’m glad he was one of the artists we locked down for this.

  • Mr. Quinn

    I wish he would use some of his creativity to find a more interesting musical sound. He takes all these different sounds to build a pretty generic pop song that would sound just as good on guitar bass and drums. He should be making a type of music that is dependent on the tones of trash can lids or car windshields, something that embodies the uniqueness of the instruments he’s using. I hope people’s submissions are more musically original.

Giveaway: QWSTION Weekender Bag

Switzerland-based QWSTION have teamed up with fashion designer Julian Zigerli to produce a special version of their Weekender bag and they sent us one. The iridescent surface displays an array of colours when light shines directly at it. Note: We shot the image above with a flash, and the colours have not been manipulated. Have a look below to see what the bag looks like with the lights on.

There’s also a second set of straps so the bag can be worn over the shoulder or as a backpack. We have one of these special bags to give away to our readers so if you wanna snag it, leave a comment below and tell us the first place you’ll travel with it.
