Going out of Bancroft with a Bang

We made a music contraption as my last project at Bancroft.  I made a bamboo structure to hang objects that make noise on this last day.  There was no thought of permanence.  Just in the moment fun using whatever materials I had to work with.   I used bamboo which I grow and know many spots in the area to get some.  Then I tied it together with rebar wire or cable ties.  There were tomato cages in the garden I put together in a more sculptural way to hang bamboo chimes from.  On the way to school someone had thrown 2 bikes in the trash so I took the front wheels.  I had a box of kitchen utensils from way back in the day when I was making armor from kitchen doodads.

We started inside playing with different sounds to find what we liked best.

Kalop loving the sounds and the sunshine.  We had a wonderful day for this project.

So my final day was joyous, sad, and very noisy.
