‘Recycled Sounds’ concert set June 1 at The Farm


MALVERN – The public is invited to a musical performance June 1 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at The Farm in Malvern.

“Recycled Sounds” is a sound and music workshop taking place at The Farm, a facility for developmentally disabled adults. Artist Amery Kessler is overseeing the project. Along with the Carroll County Arts Center, Kessler is working with The Farm staff and Shane Smith, a local metal worker, to create bells out of reclaimed scrap propane tanks.

Regarding the project, Kessler stated in an earlier article in The FPS, “We hope to inspire a sense of confidence, collective purpose and wonder for adults with disabilities.”

The group has been inventing its own way to compose and conduct the musical performance using images held and pointed to by the conductor.

During the event, the group will have the first public ringing of the large bell they created that stands nearly six feet tall and weighs almost 400 pounds.

The event is free and the public is invited. Along with the musical production, there will be refreshments, snacks and a bonfire.

The Farm is located at 5171 Knight Rd. NW, Malvern.

Recycled Sounds was made possible in part by funds received from the Ohio Arts Council.
