Seeing Sounds with Caroline Martel
With filmmaker Caroline Martel in person

Saturday, February 22, 2014 • 1:00 p.m.

Exploratorium, Pier 15, Kanbar Forum

Join filmmaker Caroline Martel for a family-friendly program of new works about sound. In her new documentary Wavemakers, Martel takes a creative approach to the story of a rare electronic instrument known as the ondes Martenot. Through the story of this mysterious and evocative instrument, Wavemakers becomes a beautiful study of the power of sound to transfix and transcend time and space.

For this program, she’ll share a series of Cymatics, which study the patterns made by visible sound vibrations, as well as archival footage of early electronic instruments.
