Chicago’s Blue Man Group is coming back this November with newly constructed and remastered instruments such as the Spinulum, Light Horns and Trigger Vibes that will bring expressive new sounds to the show.
Made from industrial materials, the Spinulum is played in a similar fashion to a slide guitar by moving a specially-made hand grip along the stainless-steel neck of the instrument while rotating a clear plastic disk.
Light Horns will allow the Blue Men to call out to the audience in a never-before-done fashion.
Part deconstructed xylophone, part drum hardware, the Trigger Vibes will present new but oddly familiar electronic sounds.
Original music compositions will also be featured in the Chicago production including the theatrical debut of “Vortex,” a piece from Blue Man Group’s latest studio album “THREE.”
