Live performance at Lab of Misfits

As part of the Science Museum Lates, Lab of Misfits Studio presents performances and experiments that explore our perception of sound in space: 

Compositions by composers Eduardo R. Miranda and Larry Goves, and performed by the Heritage Orchestra, use our 77-speaker Soundwall, to add a spatial dimension to the auditory experience. 

The perceived relationship between sound, colour and shape will be tested on participants in both our "soundseer" experiments (created in collaboration with Mick Grierson of Goldsmiths) and in an almost 100-year-old experiment, first performed on the island of Tenerife, which is now yielding new insights into the way the mind processes sensory information.
