Colourscape Turku 17 July to 5 August.
Colourscape captivates with colour and music
Colourscape, the world's largest colour labyrinth, opened on Tuesday, 17 July at Kupittaanpuisto (Kupittaa Park). For three weeks, the public will be able to enjoy a world of colour and music as well as workshops on those themes. Colourscape is open from Tuesday to 5 August.
During Capital of Culture year 2011 Colourscape enchanted people with its one hundred colourful bubbles that are interconnected to form a labyrinth. The giant web of interconnected cells filters the sun's rays to a produce a feast of colours, providing a new environment in which to experience music and art.
The Colourscape experience includes a strong musical element and various workshops. This summer's programme is extremely varied; taking in everything from throat singing to electronic music. There's also a special focus on local music and know-how.
– I am very happy that we are back in Turku. This summer's programme is really interesting and there will be a lot of collaboration with local musicians, says a delighted Lawrence Casserley of Eye Music Trust.
Colourscape’s programme has been made in cooperation with many talents including those involved in the Turku Modern and Ilmiö festivals and The X-Rust Organization. This summer, Colourscape will feature both live and recorded music from Wednesday to Sunday; and on Tuesdays and Wednesdays it will feature workshops that combine colour, light and music.
Workshops and baby colour baths
Colourscape offers the opportunity to participate in various workshops, which are run by Colourscape’s own artists. The workshops explore the significance, effects and meaning of colour and music.
– The workshops are held in English, but that is not a problem as the world of colours and music is universal, explains Michael Ormiston, Colourscape musician and Mongolian throat singing expert.
The workshop also includes the popular baby colour bath workshops, which allows even the smallest family members to experience the spectacular world of colour alongside their adult guardians. The workshop uses a variety of materials, fabrics, and food-based paints.
Colourscape was visited by 15,000 people over three weeks last summer. Eye Music Trust (UK), which specialises in creating audio-visual experiences, are now bringing Colourscape to Finland for the second time. The event is a continuation of Turku’s Capital of Culture year. The local organiser is the Bryggman-instituutti.
