SoundMuse is an exhibition by artist, classical musician, composer and teacher Nick Chamberlain, which explores the mysteries of sound and brings to life the connections between sound, visual forms and science.

SoundMuse draws on physics, biology and anthropology, combining detailed scientific research with specially created music and visual art. Through this multi-faceted approach, a deeper insight can be gained into the sound of nature and ultimately, the nature of sound itself.

The visual side of the exhibition has evolved from Nick's research into cymatics, the study of visualising sound waves. Nick is fascinated by the multitude of patterns and forms that emerge in water, soap bubbles and granules when sound is passed through them, and his work is intended to celebrate these amazing natural symmetries.

In this innovative and immersive exhibition, visitors will be able to learn more about the science of sound, hear specially crafted soundscapes and see them visualised in hypnotic and spellbinding ways, and look at curious sound-related objects in the mini sound museum.
