Science Gallery are looking for proposals for “…gallery installations, experiments, events, workshops and performances…” for inclusion in the upcoming BIORHYTHM: Music and the Body exhibition. Trinity College’s Science Gallery are looking for proposals for “…gallery installations, experiments, events, workshops and performances…” for inclusion in the upcoming BIORHYTHM: Music and the Body exhibition.
Science Gallery is calling all experimental musicians, musical neuroscientists, sound artists, cyborg performers, dance-floor divas and harmonic engineers to contribute to our upcoming BIORHYTHM show…
Science Gallery is currently developing a major new exhibition entitled BIORHYTHM: Music and the Body and we are seeking your proposals for gallery installations, experiments, events, workshops and performances for inclusion.
How does the body respond to music? Is there a neuroscience of dance? Is there a formula for the perfect hit? Why does a minor cord sound sad? How does a DJ manipulate the emotions of a crowd?
Our goal is to explore how art and science help us interpret, understand and enjoy the sounds of the 21st century. We are looking for participative experiences and experiments for the public as well as stand-alone performances.
Ideas for exploration could include –
The neuroscience of music and dance
The body as a musical instrument
Experiencing the world in sound
Music and human evolution
Music and emotion
Music vs. noise
Sound as control
Running for three months (2 July – 1 October, 2010), BIORHYTHM will also include special live performances, innovative installations, unique physical and mental experiences, high-profile talks, discussions and debates, and other musical and biological events web-focused interactions, games and truly collaborative experience.
