Touch the Gear Expo

A hands-on, family-friendly event where attendees roam among inventors and musicians and get a chance to experiment with a wide range of sound-producing gear - everything from oscillators and electronics to planks of wood with strings attached. Ask questions, make sounds, and experience how the instruments work in an environment that demystifies technology while inspiring creativity. Leonard will be sharing several natural-object instruments.

Resounding Change: Sonic Art and the Environment

An exhibition featuring work by contemporary artists who engage with environmental issues through the use of sound. Artworks encourage visitors to listen more closely to the natural world and to think about how sound is being used in a time of environmental crisis. What does sound tell us about our place in the world? What aspects of environmental change can we better understand through sound? Pieces in the exhibition, which range from a large-scale video installation to more intimate encounters with sound through headphones, address these questions and encourage reflections on our human relationship with the natural world. Leonard will be showing some of her Antarctic works, including penguin-bone instruments, graphic scores, and audio recordings of compositions.
