Ocean Song: Sounds of the Sea workshop

Saturday 15 November, 14:00-15:30 at  The Polar Museum
Suitable for 8+
Booking required. To book a place, email  umzc   zoo cam ac uk

Join us for the first workshop of the Museum of Zoology’s Ocean Song: Sounds of the Sea project, with award-winning sound artist  Chris Watson collecting voices to create a soundscape for the new Whale Hall. Begin by exploring the sounds of the sea and the animals that live there, and then it’s your turn. Have a go at exploring your voice with choir leader Rowena Whitehead and create different sounds for the atmospheric soundscape.
Add your voice to the wind and waves and become part of the new Museum of Zoology. No singing experience necessary, just enthusiasm. Follow the progress of the soundscape on the  Ocean Song Blog

This workshop is supported by Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council for England.
