“This is a company which creates music from recycled materials, ranging from artillery shells and planks of wood right through to rubber tubes and balloons. The result? Pure magic. The sheer physical energy of the company is extraordinary. This was glorious stuff!”
South Wales Evening Post

Rooted in street performance, jazz, and world music traditions, ScrapArtsMusic excites the senses with intricate rhythms, raw energy, athletic choreography and the hottest — and most inventive — reuse of materials on stage today. Fashioned from industrial scrap and offbeat materials ranging from accordion parts to artillery shells, ScrapArtsMusic’s one-of-a-kind instruments are as visually striking as their music is sonically riveting.

Audiences from four continents have welcomed this electrifying quintet with unbridled enthusiasm, embracing their intoxicating mix of music, movement and spectacle. Transcending language, culture and age, ScrapArtsMusic offers a highly physical, wildly theatrical and thoroughly entertaining taste of the musical vanguard. Athleticism, invention, and mind-blowing sound come together in a new live show experience that will leave you breathless!
