Join us and make some noise!
Welcome to our music studio where you can create your own unique sounds.
How to make noise
You can make your own discs and play them on the turntables by the log and you can spin the saws to create loud and quiet sounds – try listening to your sounds coming out of the large wooden speakers.
Meet the artists
Our music studio exhibition was made by a group of artists called the Owl Project. They work with wood and electronics to create sculptures which make music and sound art.
You can find out more about the Owl Project by visiting their website www.owlproject.com
