Citizen Science and Art Collide with Muon Open Studio

  • -
  • - (AEST)
  • Science Gallery Melbourne
    700 Swanston Street, Carlton VIC 3053, Australia

Artist Jon Butt and collaborator Lewis Gittuswill create a soundtrack using muon detections made onsite, allowing interstellar particles to form musical passages. 

The Muon Sound Lab creates an open studio space, occupying an intersection between science experimentation and creative studio practice. Visitors can watch live sound creation, talk with the artists and engage in conversations around the opposing forces of science research and poetic intuition to better comprehend the mysterious and incomprehensible.

The final work will be pressed into a vinyl record as a residue of the experiments. A live playing of the vinyl record will accompany a performance work for Science Gallery’s Friday performance series in November. 

This event is part of National Science Week at Science Gallery Melbourne.
