The Acousatron is our ongoing main feature installation; designed for busy events where lots of people want to try something out for themselves: it’s chaotic, loud and fun.
The UK Acousatron has been rebuilt 3 times, while version 5 lives and grows in Moscow.
We also build bespoke installations that use electrical control of small fans to strike amplified acoustic objects. This installation is flexible to a wide range of situations.
Scavengers workshops involve Making and Tinkering with upcycled electronic components. There are currently three linked workshops: Scavengers, Music & Noise Games, Buggy Battles.
Drop-in can involve very quick activities to promote something (like an upcoming science festival) to passers-by; less than one minute, with the option to extend the activity or sit down and try the drop-in workshop activities.
Walkabout performers with amplified acoustic everyday objects, Scavengers drop-in, Audio Assault Buggy/ Nose Testing, Bass Station. Short, participatory fun science-based activities suitable for events or public spaces where people can come and go and try things out with facilitation.
The Scavenging skills behind all of what we do: upcycling, re-purposing electronic and other waste materials. Dismantling old computers and building our own evil inventions form their innards. Scavengers use what is avaialable to them and we live in an era of incredible waste and disposability, so lets get what we can from it and learn to use what’s left over to reduce waste and increase awareness.
We specialise in activities and projects that bring people in; to a museum, to participating in STEM events, to experimenting and creating their own soundscapes. We have worked closely with the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford for several years, visiting schools in the wider community to successfully encourage hard-to-reach families to attend the museum.
