GRRR JAMMING SQUEAK is a new public art work realized by artist Paola Pivi for the city of Rotterdam. Located on the Coolsingel, one of the most significant boulevard in town, at the corner with the pedestrian square Stadhuisplein across the city hall, GRRR JAMMING SQUEAK is a fully functional professional recording studio opened to everyone and at any time. This new piece by italian artist Paola Pivi is a joyful gift and at the same time an engaging machine that redefines the idea of public art.
GRRR JAMMING SQUEAK is technically advanced, furnished with brand new complete instruments and managed by professional sound engineers, and one gentle lady-manager to help you feel comfortable enough to play bass guitar for the first time. 100% free to everyone, open and available for musicians, experts but also for amateurs, beginners and improvised players, the piece has one only rule that everybody must follow : you have to play along the recording of the sound of an animal.
People are invited to come and choose among hundreds of animal sound recordings, listen, play, compose, create, improvise, record, mix, master, jam, learn to play, teach to play, or simply to listen someone else with the sound of animals.
GRRR JAMMING SQUEAK will organize a free street concert every month, opening its doors and placing speakers on the Coolsingel, inviting artists from the world of pop, jazz, world, and classical music to play along the animals. The studio will also organize an event every week, again for free, like talks or performances.
