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 feature we launched earlier this year for the Southampton Science and Engineering Festival (SOTSEF), where to learn, explore, experience and find out more about the world of Sound.

Just choose a bubble to start exploring this amazing world with researchers and artists from the Music Department at the University of Southampton and the Institute of Sound and Vibration (ISVR).
