Gap Filler along with local creatives Gaby Montejo, Jason Ware, Tim McGurk and Trent Hiles have created a variety of musical instruments from recovered and re-appropriated materials. Sound Garden is located in the Greening the Rubble mini-park on the corner of Gloucester and Colombo Street (formerly Mum’s 24 restaurant).

Instruments have been installed on this site for the public’s playing pleasure; ready and waiting to be discovered – to be struck, strummed, and swivelled. "I've made drums from giant pipes, children love them, they play them with their whole bodies not just their hands. Tim's made a xylophone of tubes that you can slap and play, and Jason has made a huge rain stick that's 3 metres long," says Gaby Montejo.
Greening the Rubble’s temporary mini-park provides the perfect setting. Relocated from it’s former site in Riccarton, this mini-park in the heart of the city includes a stage for buskers, seating, and planters with maple trees and native species.
