Nobuo Kubota, sculpteur et musicien nous livre ici son one man show fait de notes musicales et de bruits. Les objets les plus hétéroclites, jouets, tuyaux, ballons et sonnettes côtoient saxophone, gong et cymbales, formant un orchestre. Résultat de la démarche d'un musicien accompli vers la découverte de sources sonores inhabituelles, le spectacle de Kubota invite le spectateur à vivre une expérience musicale et cinématographique nouvelle.

Have students bring in objects that make interesting sounds; they must not show their object to the others. With their back to the class, each student activates the sound of the object; the others must guess what it is. What does it sound like? Might we be able to use it as a sound effect in a film? To imitate what sound? Every sound we hear creates a mental image. This is a creative exercise that stimulates students’ hearing acuity.
