Blockwerk Orchestra

Blockwerk Orchestra is an interactive installation piece for exploring art through sound and music conceived and built by Noel Murphy and Tom Hill. Artfully Sighted, a group of individuals from NRSB, commissioned digital artist Noel Murphy and musician and sonic artist Tom Hill (from Origamibiro) to lead them in the design and production of an innovative and multi-sensory installation to go in the Long Gallery at Nottingham Castle.

Through a series of workshops, they came up with a way for partially sighted people to ‘see’ art.

By picking up a block (see video below) and taking it into the gallery, unique sounds are produced that change as the user moves around the artwork and gallery space.
