Treat yourself to time out of the everyday to to slow down.

Verse Converse blends science and technology, enabling you to make beautiful music using only your body heat.

The installation will allow you to to make musical conversation by simply being in the space. No music making experience will be needed. At a time when social distancing and polarised arguments have damaged mental health and divided society, this is an opportunity for a variety of social groups and individuals to create beautiful harmony and contemplate each other’s input.

What can you expect from Verse Converse? When someone stands under one of the rotors, their rising body heat causes it to turn. When the rotor turns it creates a musical note that combines to create a unique piece of music. The sound is synthesised with coloured light, creating shadow that is projected through the space as the illuminated rotors turn.

What’s expected of you? To explore the room, sounds, light and relax. You can turn a rotor or listen to the soft sounds and drift away with the gentle lighting .

The experience lasts 20 minutes, though you’re free to leave any time (no one will be offended!).
