Soundplay Dome workshop
Wednesday 17 April 

11am - 3.30pm

Imaginate in association with Paisley Arts Centre are delighted to be working with the Soundplay Projects to offer artists the opportunity to learn more about sensory spaces for young audiences.  Created by visual artist Ewan Sinclair and musician Bal Cooke, the Soundplay Dome is an accessible interactive musical sensory space. Taking the form of a 5-metre diameter geodesic dome, the space uses tactile interfaces and projection mapping to give audiences an accessible creative experience.

During this workshop, Ewan and Bal will talk about the development of the Dome; their findings from testing workshops; how previous projects lead to this point; the technology used in the space; and the future plans for the Dome. Participants will have a session in the Dome, followed by a thorough explanation of the hardware and software used.  There will then be an opportunity to experiment with the theatrical and storytelling potentials of the dome, looking at altering the content and using the Dome as a template

This workshop is part of the Artist in Residence with Paisley Arts Centre supported by Imaginate with funding from Creative Scotland.
