Boom: Experiments in Sound

Sound is all around us, every day. Even when you think it’s quiet, it’s not completely silent.

The Science and Media Museum in Bradford is currently hosting Boom: Experiments in Sound, a free temporary exhibition.

Experience the sensation of sound, as visitors uncover how it shapes our everyday lives. Follow the life of a soundwave through the gallery, from creation to being heard.

Three BA Art and Design students from the School of Design have contributed to the production of a reworking of Alvin and Mary Lucier's composition 'I am sitting in a room', with three students from Leeds Beckett University. 

This new recording features in the temporary exhibition and is titled 'I am standing in a museum,' and is running until 5 December 2021 for visitors.
