The toy music orchestra is a London based ensemble initiated by Steve Beresford and Blanca Regina in 2013. They propose making music and sound via free improvisation with toys , objects sometimes hacked or modified.
For this performance the proposal is to play 2 sets, one with some selected members of the Toy Music Orchestra and one set including the participants of the hacking toy workshop imparted by Tasos Stamou.
