The VOCAL VIBRATIONS project opened at the new Le Laboratoire Cambridge on Thursday and runs through March; more on that shortly. In the meantime, the news is that you can download the music for the project exclusively from Bowers+Wilkins, in both MP3 and hi-res-quality (including surround sound), starting TODAY. Download here.

“Here’s a picture from yesterday of my terrific team from the MIT Media Lab that has been working on the VOCAL VIBRATIONS project, showing the specially designed “oRb” that lets you hold the vibrations from your voice in your hands. Yes, it’s an unusual experience! Press conference this morning, private opening this evening, and public opening tomorrow, all at Le Laboratoire, Paris.”
The “oRb” from our VOCAL VIBRATIONS project that lets you hold the vibrations from your voice right in your hands.
The Opera of the Future team and Neri Oxman are fine tuning the VOCAL VIBRATIONS experience at Le Laboratoire in Paris for tomorrow’s private opening, with public opening on Friday…..and it is starting to look and sound great. It will be there through September 2014, so we hope you have a chance to hear/see it. Information here.
