bringing contemporary music and arts to the widest possible audience
FABULOUS SOUND MACHINES AT MAC BIRMINGHAM
Saturday Oct 28th to Thursday Nov 2nd
Composer/musician David Stevens leads unique workshops in colour, light and music that YOU create yourself.....
Drop in to our unique Colour/Music Sensory Installation in the Foyle Theatre and create your own world of colour and music through movement.
Large fabric "sails" fill the space and reflect and mix colours and light that you, the public, create yourselves. Our resident composer, David Stevens, will show you how to create whole orchestras of sound with just the movement of your hands, feet - or literally any part of your body - moving over special infra-red sensors.
Sound-paintings can also be played by moving your hands over the surface and you can “paint” rainbows of colour around the space.
AND THERE ARE MORE FABULOUS SOUND MACHINES IN THE FOYER OF MIDLAND ART CENTRE......
* A Giant Bottle Organ where you can create your own music on bottles with wooden keys to operate
* A Kaleidochord where a keyboard operates little toys and found objects instead of strings
* A Two-Slate Scrape where you can create new sounds with pulley wheels and slate pieces.
