Held annually in New York since 2008, the World Science Festival celebrates the intersection between science and the arts through debate, theatre, interactive experiments and explorations, musical performances, bespoke events and major outdoor experiences.
The Queensland Museum Network holds exclusive license to host the World Science Festival in the Asia Pacific, reinforcing Australia’s position as a knowledge economy and igniting new and challenging discussions in and about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). The inaugural World Science Festival Brisbane was held in 2016. It included a flagship event in Brisbane (9-13 March) and regional events in Chinchilla (12-13 February) and Townsville (19-20 February).
The World Science Festival Brisbane will return in 2017 with a flagship event in Brisbane from 22-26 March 2017 and regional events in Gladstone (3-4 March), Toowoomba (17 March), Townsville (26-27 March) and Chinchilla (31 March -1 April).
100 Ways to Listen includes a program of Sonic Environments installation with immersive multi-channel speaker arrays. We are proud to be using AT Professional (Acoustic Technologies) Loudspeaker Systems in the Music Technology department at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University.
Acoustic Technologies' Founding Director Harry Lloyd-Williams started the company in 1974 with a fierce determination to design and manufacture high quality professional audio products. At that time professional audio was in its infancy. High quality equipment was invariably imported, expensive and out of reach for the average Australian musician.
Acoustic Technologies has changed that by developing a range of products which in every way equals or betters the imported equivalent. The company meets the changing and challenging demands of the audio community and ensures that music technology researchers have access to appropriate technologies for cutting edge research in immersive sound art.
