Tangible Sound – Symposium
Representation of physical models in the museum
Sat, September 26, 2015 – Sun, September 27, 2015, Symposium

The theme of »Tangibility« is the basis for the symposium that is taking place as part of the »Tangible Sound« festival. The latest results, which the FabLab Barcelona, ACROE in Grenoble and the universities of Cardiff and Corfu are obtaining in this field, will be presented in the programme. Nowadays, new interfaces play an increasing role. The development of methods, which can make algorithms, simulations and other mathematical processes perceptible and tangible and bring them to life, is essential here.
Between Friday and Sunday, visitors can also discover exciting installations by our project partners, which illustrate the themes of the symposium and make these tangible on-site. A highlight of the symposium will be the “The machine to be another” performance by the BeAnotherLab collective, which can be seen on both Saturday and Sunday following the lecture program.
