Southampton Digital Sound Festival

2020 was designated as the International Year of Sound (IYS) by the International Commission for Acoustics but, due to the current pandemic, celebrations of the IYS 2020 have been extended into the year 2021.

To give you a flavour for what the IYS is all about, we are bringing you the Southampton Sound Festival, a brand new featured digital event of this year’s Southampton Science and Engineering Festival, where you can learn, explore, experience and find out more about the world of Sound.

This festival within a festival is brought to you in collaboration with the University of Southampton Institute of Sound and Vibration (ISVR), an internationally renowned institute committed to improving the understanding of acoustics and vibration, and their impact on the wellbeing of the community and the quality and performance of engineering products.

Just choose a bubble to explore the amazing world of Sound through activities created by the researchers at ISVR and the University Music Department.

And don’t forget to share your best creations or best recorded test with our researchers on the SOTSEF Diary – and explore the wider festival online!
