soundBox: Adventure Science Center's Newest Exhibit
The soundBox exhibit will let you explore the science of music and sound through 14 experiences while celebrating Nashville’s Music City roots.
So what can you actually do in this hands-on (literally!) exhibit? Create your own musical tracks by collaborating with friends, test your vocal chops in the Vocal Studio, explore the science of immersive sound, visualize notes and beats on glowing walls, and adjust the pitch and volume of sounds and tones in full-body experiences.
You can even sing or speak to see your own vocal patterns on a digital wall, or scan your fingerprint to create unique songs and animations to share with all of your friends! How cool is that?! We say pretty darn cool.
Adventure Science Center also made sure to connect soundBox to Nashville’s music scene. They’ve partnered with music industry professionals in the area to help you explore the different career paths in music and sound, so you can be more aware of all the creative opportunity there is in Music City!
