City Sound Walks

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2018.

Imagine hearing the tones, beats and rhythms of a city generated from ambient and electrical lighting, urban light design, flashing lamp posts and passing cars. Tune up your portable Noise Machine synthesizer and join the outdoor orchestra as we take to the Manchester streets and play the sound of the city environment. Let the city lights trigger your device, creating sounds that you can weave into an industrial soundscape of noise inspired by urban architecture.

Meeting point

Please meet by the metal industrial sculpture right next to the pedestrian crossing at the Science and Industry Museum, directly opposite the air and space gallery – see map below. Please arrive 10 minutes before the start time so we can start promptly on the half hour.
