The Science of Sound is an interactive presentation about the history and science of recorded sounds. It includes several hands-on activities, such as recording your voice straight to a vinyl record using a restored 1940’s record cutter and making a record player from a piece of paper and a cactus needle.  If you are a musician, feel free to bring your instrument and record your own vinyl single to take home for free (time permitting). 

The presenter, Mike Dixon travels all over the world to cut records at festival, parties, and events for clients such as Converse, Toyota, American Express and Spotify.  He has also worked with a wide range of artists including Justin Timberlake, Lil' Yachty, and The Residents. 

For ages 13-17. Registration required. Limited to 20 participants. This program is funded by the Friends for the Public Library.

Registration has closed.
