About Sound Symphony

A co-production between Independent Arts Projects and Oily Cart.

Sound Symphony is a highly interactive, sensory performance made especially for and with Autistic young people.

The show is a playful journey through sound and music. Sound Symphony provides a sensory rich environment, where you will feel music through your whole body. It celebrates making music your own way, weaving together live classical instruments, weaving together live classical instruments, singing and a wide range of weird and wonderful sounds.

This performance is responsive to each audience member, allowing them to become co-composers in their own symphony of sounds. The performance is designed for small audience groups to be able to accommodate and engage young people who experience the most barriers to access. This is a show for sound seekers.

Originally produced by Independent Arts Projects in association with Capital Theatres, Edinburgh with support from Creative Scotland and Paul Hamlyn.
