Symphony of the Senses: Colour/Music at Stanley Arts

Drop in on this unique Colour/Music Sensory Installation and create your own world of colour and music through movement as part of the Eye Music, Arts Council England funded tour.


Large fabric “sails” fill the space and reflect and mix colours and light that you, the public, create yourselves. Join resident composer, David Stevens, who will be in the space to show you how to create whole orchestras of sound with just the movement of your hands, feet – or literally any part of your body – moving over special laser movement sensors. Sound-paintings can also be played by moving your hands over the surface and you can “paint” rainbows of colour around the space.

Come along anytime between 12:30-3:30pm or join us at 11:30am for a performance by local special needs children from Bensham Manor School of their own “Symphony of the Senses”. Students will have learnt new techniques of music and visual art to create a sensory performance.

The school performances will be led by composer David Stevens with support from Eye Music Trust.

This event is taking place in the Society Room which has step free access via a lift. Free on street parking is available all day on Sundays on Cumberlow Avenue (the road next to the event space).
