Blue Man Group – Making Waves
This awesome exhibit – designed to bring together science and art – will take the whole family through a multi-sensory exploration of sound that provides an opportunity to play together while discovering the fun of music.
Tube Phones +
“Tube Phones” demonstrate the different characteristics of sound and how it can be manipulated. Echo, distortion, and reverb are all demonstrated through this personal voice transformation.
Sand Drum +
We all know that sound is a physical vibration in the air. But we rarely think about the physicality of sound. Here we’ll see, and feel that sound is a physical force with the ability to move things. Speakers mounted under drum heads will produce aural vibrations that form resonance patterns in sand.
Surround Sound Theater +
The whole experience comes together in the intimate surround sound theatre. The Blue Men perform a song created specifically for this exhibit maximizing the use of surround sound technology while putting together the elements of sound showcased throughout the interactive exhibit.
Play PVC instruments just like Blue Man Group. Three sets of pipes let kids experiment separately – or join together in their own Blue Man performance. A pulsing black-light produces brilliant colors and the PVCs are positioned in front of a dramatic stage photograph from the show.
