Knowing passion for music among many Irish, I have only been waiting to see a sound and music art exhibit in the Science Gallery. And here we are – Sound Check runs until September 24th and is free!
Questions like why do we play music mainly with our hands and not legs, or how would your voice sound if you were a bird can be answered here. On the top floor I could experiment and practice to create my own music (with no previous experience I must admit). Innovative things like wireless sensor gloves to control music or instruments based on female heeled shoes are to be seen there as well.
Little warning for those who like me easily get headaches from noisy environments: it is quite noisy as everyone is trying to play with different sounds at the same time. Nonetheless, totally worth experiencing.
The little shop with weird and funny items is downstairs and a modern café seating – just at the end of the ground floor. Soups are delicious there by the way!
If you have a look at the website of the Science Gallery you will find plenty of events happening every day. It could be a talk by someone famous in a certain field of science, or a movie or even a party! Do not forget to register if you want to attend, in most cases those events would be free as well.
