From rubbish and scrap to a unique and remarkable collection of instruments that inspire creativity
The creator and father of Opera Tactile is composer Torbjörn Grass. Together with a percussionist and Verket, and blended with a large measure of fantasy and creativity, scrap instruments were created from the remains of the old ironworks and the rubbish tip.
Anyone can compose their own little piece of music here and nobody needs to worry about if they are musically inclined or not. The instruments are not tuned and provide the same conditions for all. It is totally up to you what sort of music flows from the instrument. They include a harp of old beams and piano strings, an impeller, oil drums, wheel rims and bundles of sheet iron hanging on springs, aluminium pipes etc.
