  • **CANCELLED DIE TO COVID** Eye Music: Drop in to the unique Colour/Music Sensory Installation and create your own world of colour and music through movement. Large fabric 'sails' fill the space to reflect and mix colours and light that you create. Eye Music's resident composer, David Stevens, will be in the space to show you how to create whole orchestras of sound with just the movement of your hands or feet over special infra-red sensors.  Sound-paintings can also be played by moving your hands over the surface and you can 'paint' rainbows of colour around the space. Part of the Eye Music, Arts Council England-funded tour (as seen at Grow Festival Corby 2020).
