Created by Regina-based artist/performer Jeff Morton, this installation piece consists of small interactive stations for the creation of live,circuit-bent sound. Participants interact with push-buttons, sliders, dials, and other electronic controls to activate re-wired and modified toy electronic instruments. The installation is both a performable instrument and a composition written with physical objects, and is intended to communicate the impracticality of, and sometimes seemingly malicious intent of, electronic children’s toys that carry educational messages, particularly about music.

On April 28, Jeff Morton will perform live in a showcase that encapsulates many of the ideas and concepts behind All The Horses and All The Egg, using DIY modified instruments to produce new and unexpected musical forms.

 Gallery hours: 12pm - 6pm, Wednesday to Sunday
