A unique interactive, musical sensory space for all. Inspired by years spent combining digital art and music to stimulate creativity in youngsters, Ewan Sinclair and Bal Cooke have created a multi-sensory, audiovisual pop-up playground where sound, animation and interactive technology collide. Suitable for children of all ages, this magical sensory space invites its visitors to create soothing musical landscape using objects and tactile materials, turning the space into a playful digital instrument. Play, roll, drum, move or sing, the Soundplay Dome wants you to experiment and have some fun with music and sound!
