Serving Sounds is a multi-sensory sound installation that creates connection through music – a bar that serves bass rather than beer. The installation is an interactive work, playful and joyful.

You’ll find the ordinary items you’d usually expect to find, such as glasses, a lemon, the odd bit of change but at this bar, these items when touched will create a groove, a sound, strings, a snare, maybe a guitar, or synths if you like. It’s a dance party like no other, accept this one is on the street right in front of you.

Duration: 60minutes
