Sound Site: First Time Here?
The Sound Site is part of the Sound Project, a partnership between the Science
Museum and the Minnesota Orchestra. The site's purpose is to present activities,
discussions and multimedia explorations about sound, both from a scientific
and artistic perspective.
Because the site uses sound, to have the best experience, be sure you have
your computer speakers volume adjusted to a nice level. We have a sound below
for you to test your volume.
Some sounds and multimedia on this site require plug-ins. We have chosen
the plug-ins most likely to already be on your web broswer, plug-ins that
are the most popular on the web, such as Real Audio and QuickTime. We have
created a plug-ins page
where you can download all
the necessary free software to enjoy the entire site.
