Sound Bites

Sound Bites

Sounds are a part of our everyday lives and help us to make sense of the world around us. Experience how sound comes from vibrations – waves of energy that push tiny molecules against one another in pulses. Explore the nature of sound and how we hear, the science and art behind the tools we use to create different types of sound, and discover how humans use this compression of air molecules we call sound to create the emotional experience we call music.
