The third iteration and the first Australian presentation of The Instrument Builders Project opened on Saturday 1 November at the NGV Studio in Melbourne. 400 people (and little people) attended and made an almighty racket. The instruments looked and sounded incredible.

The opening featured performances and presentations by Caitlin Franzman, Peter Blamey, Dylan Martorell, Pia Van Gelder, Wukir Suryadi, Andreas Siagian, Lintang Radittya, Tintin Wulia, Michael Candy and Dale Gorfinkel.
