Generation NOISE by Owl Project

Enter a futuristic wooden workshop where you can be the operator of amazing human-powered sound machines.

The genius revolving Generation NOISE machines will turn a wave drawn by you into a unique sound of your own creation.

Plus speaker horns and strange electronic sounds will mingle together to form an inspiring music studio space. Experiment with the NOISE sculptures around you or just immerse yourself in the sound experience.

What amazing special effects will you create with these other-worldly inventions? You don’t need to be an artist or musician to work the wonderful wooden studio. Kids and grown ups will love it.

Generation NOISE was invented by a group of artists called Owl Project. They work with wood and electronics to fuse sculpture and sound art, creating music making machines and all kinds of objects.

They are fascinated by how humans interact with computers and like to see what happens when traditional craft materials like wood are used to make modern technologies.

Come make some NOISE!
