BIORYTHM: Music and the Body
Sunday, April 1, 2018 @ 9:00 am - Wednesday, October 17, 2018 @ 5:00 pm$8 – $10
What is it about music that moves us; that inspires us; that connects us? That’s precisely what the newest traveling exhibition at the John P. McGovern Museum of Health and Medical Science, BIORHYTHM: Music and the Body will explore when it opens officially on January 13, 2018. Through a series of one-of-a-kind interactive installations, visitors to The Health Museum will be able to use their own bodies to discover and understand how the mind and the body react to musical stimulation.
A full-body shell-like capsule will allow guests to experience tactile sound vibrations and visualizations throughout their entire body, while a full-sized sonic bed will engulf multiple individuals simultaneously in a serenade of sound and movement. A multi-user chainlinked human instrument will create ever-changing unique sounds as individuals hold hands and move about the installation. These are just a few of the individual works that are featured within the trilingual BIORHYTHM exhibition. In Houston, BIORHYTHM will be available in English, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.
BIORHYTHM will be showcased at The Health Museum, 1515 Hermann Dr. Houston, TX, 77004 from January 13-July 31st, 2018. The price of admission to The Health Museum includes BIORHYTHM: Music and the Body, as well as the other permanent installations available at Houston’ s most interactive science and health learning center.
