One kazoo? That’s silly and fun. But 10,000 kazoos? That’s a city-sized pied piper of absurdity. An all-encompassing frenzy of kazoo-thiasm. A leap into an unknown kazoo-niverse.
10,000 Kazoos is a mass participation event for RISING 2023. It’s going to be a big, unifying, howling moment in the heart of Melbourne, in Federation Square, and anyone can take part.
The kazoo is arguably the world’s easiest instrument, which is kind of the point. There’s no practice, special skill, particularly tuneful ear or musical ability required. Just grab a biodegradable kazoo (we’ll provide them). Stick one in your mouth and send some do-do-dos down the tube alongside 9,999 kazooists, all at once, in ramshackle unison.
Will we transcend? Will we break a world record? Will we communicate with the ducks on some kind of infrasonic level?
There’s only one way to find out.
