The Cake Orchestra

Computer Science Atrium (Y9 on campus map)
Friday 20 March 2015 (12:00-14:00)

The cake orchestra is a cake-technology-music interface for people without much musical ability but with an interest in technology and cakes.

It’s made up of several sets of cakes and sensors, each associated with a different instrument noise. Moving the cakes around on the playing surface triggers the instruments. Guaranteed to be more edible than a real orchestra!

Admission is free, no booking required. Just turn up and join in!

This event is presented as part of the University of Birmingham's Arts & Science Festival (16-22 March 2015), a week-long celebration of ideas, research and collaboration across campus.
