Science Week Workshops: Inventive Ears 11 - 12 Nov 2023

Explore how sound works and why we make music in this hands-on workshop for children aged 7+ with instrument builder and sound artist Ed Devane.

Using a newly commissioned installation made by Ed as a backdrop and inspiration, various aspects of sound and music will be intuitively investigated and made into creative elements for mini improvised musical performances. From frequency, duration, timbre and shape to rhythm, amplification, vibration and harmony, discover the building blocks of sounds and see what you can make from them.

Ed's new installation will be on display as part of our free, drop-in Science Week exhibition, The Sound of Light, along with other fascinating artworks exploring sound, light and physics. Find out more here.
