Music House by New Orleans Airlift debuts Friday
Shreveport (KMSS) — The music house in Shreveport debuted Friday night.
Two dozen artists from in and out of Shreveport came together turning scraps and junk into music houses.
That's houses that can be played as musical instruments.
From floorboards that act like piano keys, to all kinds of made up instruments that can be enjoyed by everyone whether you know how to play music or not.
Casey Jones of the Shreveport Regional Arts Council picked up the project as part of their monthly arts show "Unscene!" aiming to bring life back to Shreveport Common.
"You're taking this old are and repurposed pieces and putting it back together creating something new out of the old. they had already done what we were trying to do and so we brought them up here to show us how they did what they did," says Jones.
The project was spearheaded by the organization New Orleans Airlift.
They started the project back in 2011 and have since made musical houses in Ukraine, New Orleans, and now in Shreveport.
Those interested can watch their show at 8 or 9 p.m. Friday night or Saturday afternoon at 3 to 9 at night.
They're located on 1001 Texas Avenue.
