Hammer and Tongs (The Trampoline Orchestra)

In September 2007, Faulks spent two weeks in the Nuffield Theatre with ten performers, four professional trampolinists and several trampolines (including four olympic sized ones), exploring the idea of using trampolines as musical instruments. By rigging sensors to a number of trampolines the group used each bounce to trigger samples, noises and notes, transforming themselves into a highly physical orchestra, intent on devising a unique set of audio-visual compositions.
