Discover an unusual cello you can play without having taken any lessons! A fun new music installation by composer Jonathan Nangle.


Jonathan has taken the body of an old, broken cello and brought it back to life – but it’s not quite the same as a normal cello anymore! It now has special paint on the outside that not only looks cool but also conducts electricity. This means you will be able to make this cello play lots of new and unexpected sounds using just your hands. Come and try it out and see what kind of weird and wonderful new cello music you can make!
