Trumpet Flowers

Inside Exchange Flags square, you’ll find Amigo & Amigo’s super-sized Trumpet Flowers. The square is transformed into a musical, immersive garden of light and sound.

You can’t help but feel you are shrinking as you approach our super-sized Trumpet Flowers. Tentatively stepping inside some unseen Giant’s musical garden, you become surrounded by an explosive and immersive jungle of light, colour and sound. Moving in and around the flower forest uncovers a deeper connection to their individual trumpet key controllers. Interactive keys that allow you to play each flower as a 2-6m towering musical & light instrument.

Make your own spectacular floral symphony of sound and light, or catch one of the scheduled animated musicals scores throughout the evening. Inspired by vintage gramophones Trumpet Flowers will shock and surprise as the entire world periodically bursts to life and plays its own commissioned musical score. A piece composed and played by Otis studio and some of Sydney’s finest Jazz musicians. Every Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and Drum sound in Trumpet Flowers repertoire, an individual live recorded and energetic moment at your fingertips to experiment with.
