Millennium Point presents ‘All Ears’, a new exhibition curated by Capsule in collaboration with Birmingham Museums taking place from 1st – 14th June 2015.

Audiences are encouraged to interact with a newly commissioned sound sculpture by collaborative group Owl Project, which is assembled from paper discs, synth modules, motors and fixings and will generate endlessly changing beats; marvel at a five-octave pipe organ reconditioned by roboticist and composer Sarah Angliss and artists Colin Uttley and Eve Warren; experience environmental sounds via Morton Underwood’s listening device; and synchronise with artist Paul Gittens’ Oak Apple Orchestra.

These new works will be exhibited alongside examples of Victorian music boxes and tabletop organs from Birmingham Museum Trust’s rarely-seen collection. The works will situate these early programmable machines within a rich history of sound art and radical experimental music, which has long been defined and shaped by its complex relationship with technology.

There will be a number of events happening as part of Supersonic Festival 2015 that will be incorporated into the exhibition such as the incredible Moog Sound Lab and Bees in a Tin. Supersonic Festival is delighted to be partnering with the internationally renowned Moog Sound Lab and Birmingham City University to create a four-week artist residents programme, which will be based at the Parkside campus. It will focus on organic experimentation and is a unique opportunity for artists to explore analog sound-scaping, synthesis and effects.

Taking place from 10.30am until 5 pm on Friday 12th June, Bees in a Tin by Many & Varied is a gathering for people who make or are interested in unique interfaces for the world around them, featuring talks and workshops from key makers and thinkers from around the country. If you’re interested in the spaces where the arts, science, technology, and games crash into one another: then this is for you.

Join us for an energetic day of talks, games, demos and workshops encompassing: microbiology, guided tours, research through design, impersonation of plain clothes police officers, sculptural musical controllers; …and custard. All rounded up with a keynote from the splendid Owl Project.
