    Graphics for Tiru Riru Project
Tiru Riru
"Tiru riru[...]" is a project run in the first half of 2011 in Lublin and Warsaw (Zachęta National Gallery of Art) by the Catholic Society for People in Need AGAPE, in partnership with the Art and Technology Foundation and the Music of the Frontier Foundation. Financial support for the project was provided by the Orange Academy. The main aim of the activity was to enable its participants, namely children from socially disadvantaged environments, to experience traditional folk music, as well as electroacoustic and electronic music improvisation. Apart from gaining the basic knowledge about the aforementioned music genres, along with the history and psychology of music, the children had an opportunity to meet artists and traditional culture researchers, to participate in the construction of instruments and to try their hand on stage. The project was also a promotion of these less popular, non-mainstream music genres.

The project had its gala presentation with a concert in the Zachęta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw, when children had a unique opportunity to play on stage with the musicians who cooperate with Warsaw Electronic Festival.

This project produced a CD: Tiru Riru - "Dźwiękowa podróż od tradycji do awangardy" (2011), published by WEFREC label.
