Motorgenic is part human, part machine. A sound installation set in The Substation’s gallery spaces, it aims to challenge the role of percussion in modern music by expanding the physical capabilities of the instruments. Audiences are invited to move through the installation and, in doing so, their bodies will activate a variety of robotic and instrumental mechanisms, creating an experimental musical soundscape. The event is free and all are welcome. If you are interested in the impact of machines and human intervention on music making this event is for you.
