The Science of Sound

An exhibition looking at one of the five senses, hearing and how this is of interest to scientists and engineers.

Hearing, as one of the human senses, has always been of interest to scientists and engineers.

  • What is sound?
  • What makes sound into music? 
  • How do we perceive it? 
  • How can we reproduce it? 

All these questions are still being asked, but we've come a long way in understanding the basics. From early acoustic experiments to the development of digital technology, we follow the ongoing investigation into the science of sound.
