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.

Inflatable Geometric Dome Explores the Transformative Nature of Colour

Pneuhaus1

“Fabric Prism” by art collective Pneuhaus (aka Matt Muller, Augie Lehrecke and Levi Bedall) is an interactive installation made from an inflatable, light-sensitive membrane of their own design. Constructed earlier this month as part of PVDFest 2016 in Providence, Rhode Island, the boldly coloured fabrics on the exterior of the geometric dome translate into more subtle shades inside, depending on the time and brightness of the day. More images below.
