Organotopia is a project developed during a training course about
instruments and their use in arts and education. Organotopia is
"-topia" (place) for (and made from) instruments (Organs).
A land which everything produces music sounds. Parts and mechanisms
from the "world isntrumentarium", principles from Physics
and Acoustics, arrange every detail, every part of this world. That's
why someone who invents a part of Organotopia has to solve practical
construction problems, to know basic sound-producing principles,
and also to activate his knowledge and imagination. Finally Organotopia
is an interdisciplinary way to learn about Music, Sound and Instruments
"on-paper"; it’s a creative and efficient didactic tool…
In this page you can see invented instruments from practicing scholars,
during lessons that took place in Winter of 2007. During their practicing,
they drew these instruments, gave names to them and had to explain
the way the istruments work. Teacher had the opportunity to make
suggestions and practical improvements.
Organotopia is a project-in-process from Dimitris Sarris with the
participation of music teachers from Greece and the cooperation
of Cultural Institutions and Organizations.
