Sonic Ensemble

Sonic Ensemble

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017. 

Part of A Grand Exposition: Arcade

Part of A Grand Exposition: Sci-Art

Sonic Ensemble by Jen Haugan is an interactive sonic sculpture and performance piece that creates sound seemingly out of thin air using a combination of the Doppler effect and audio feedback. Participants are able to create a variety of interesting sounds simply by placing the provided microphone near the piece itself, and they will see how the sound is altered depending on where they position the microphone.

The piece will be open for audience interaction at supervised times during the festival. The activity is open to the general public, and people of all ages, including small children and people with disabilities, and aims to be a fun and playful way of initiating both young and older audience members to various sonic effects.
