Sonic Sensing with Surface Speakers, Contact Microphones and Sound Visualisations

What: 
Participate in activating windows with surface speakers and contact microphones linked to a sound visualisation projection.
When & Where: 
TATE EXCHANGE, Level 5, Switch House, Bankside, London, SE1 9TG (12pm - 5:30pm)
About: 

Participate in activating the windows of Tate Exchange to become sonically interactive through placing surface speakers against them. Experience a sonic environment of recordings of foghorns and bell buoys from America while looking over the River Thames, as well as radio waves received from Outer Space and a dripping tap tap from a studio sink in Deptford.

Contact microphones will be attached to the windows picking up the sonic vibrations of the surface speakers that will activate sound visualizations projected onto the architectural structures inside Tate Exchange.

This SONIC SENSING project has developed and adapted over two previous Digital Maker sessions at Tate Exchange ( 8th Feb and 8th March ) to become its present form. On 22nd March it will be presented at 'Re-Animating Materiality through Sound' organised by Sadhna Jain in the Project Space of TEX (12.00 - 2.00 pm) and can be participated with throughout the afternoon (2.00 - 5.00 pm).
