WORKSHOP OUTPUT

Keep an eye (and an ear) on this section of the web site to keep up with all the music and mayhem that will be generated in the many workshops over the course of the BIORHYTHM  exhibition.

 

Bob Moog's Glasses

This workshop led by Sean Mc Donald, was a great opportunity for participants to learn more about the Bob Moog's Glasses installation in Biorhythm. Sean demonstrated how to experiment with mixed reality environments, develop an understanding of how the human body is impacted and the applications of using such environments in a real life context for education.

Later on in this workshop White Noise collaborated with Sean on an experimental journey of sound and vision, much to everyone's delight!

Human BeatBox

White Noise (also performing at the Biorhythm launch night in Science Gallery) led this Human Beatbox workshop, teaching participants about the role of beatboxing in linguistics and how to acquire the skill of creating music from vocal sounds you never knew you could make.

Later on in this workshop White Noise collaborated with Sean Mc Donald from the Bob Moog's Glasses workshop right in the studio next door, much to everyone's delight!

Shape Of Sound

The Shape of Sound workshop led by artist Grace Digney (also demonstrated and used at the Biorhythm launch night), allowed participants to use an instrument called an Eidophone  to create a mulititude of sound pattern drawings in response to their own speech and singing, simply using sand and the force of vibration.

 

Taiko Drumming

This Taiko Drumming workshop was led by internationally renowned Wadaiko Artist Art Lee.

Taiko - also called Wadaiko in Japan, literally meaning “Large Japanese Drum”- is a combination of percussion, dance and and martial arts mixed with power, speed and synchronous movement.

Check out the video below to see how our participants drummed up a storm in the Science Gallery!
