Science meets music – impressions from launch event

On Sunday, 1 May, the “Science Meets Music” – the launch event of the Esch22 Sound of Data project – took place, featuring interactive workshops for adults and children, a cyborg that can hear colours, a musician who converts data into a music and more. 

More than 800 visitors of all ages came to the Rockhal on 1 May for the “Science meets Music” event – the launch event of the Esch2022 project “The Sound of Data”. The event was divided into a Science and Music Fair in the foyer of the Rockhal, a bit similar to the Science Festival, combined with interactive workshops blending music and science. The other part took the shape of conference, followed by panel discussions, keynote talks and lecture performances at the Rockhal Club.

In the foyer, for example, one could visualise music based on self-made drawings, or make music from data, or visualise music with the help of sand and water. In addition, Mr. Science got out his bass guitar and made music with lightning on a Tesla coil.
