Sounds From the Gardens

November 16 - November 17

Come along to two days of activities exploring the sounds of the Horniman Museum and Gardens and our impact on the environment. On Saturday there will be soundwalks, field recordings, composition workshops and participatory live performance. This will be followed on Sunday by sound-art performances exploring environmental change that will be broadcast from the Bandstand.

You can also access out-door sound installations throughout the weekend and sounds of the local ecosystem will be brought into the Museum’s Natural History Gallery with Ambrose Seddon’s installation.
