This autumn, the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències presents 'Play. Science and Music', the 'Science Theatre' and the IMAX premiere 'Amazon Adventure'
Sep 14, 2020
The Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències presents an updated offering this autumn with the interactive exhibition 'Play. Science and Music' in the Museu de les Ciències, the IMAX premiere 'Amazon Adventure' in the Hemisfèric and the BBC film 'Sharks' and the SOS Tiburones exhibition in the Oceanográfic.
The 'Play. Science and Music' exhibition is produced by the "Parque de las Ciencias de Granada" in collaboration with the "Museo Interactivo de la Música de Málaga" (MIMMA). The showing deals with the relationships between the arts and sciences, and teaches physics, biology and mathematics through music, at the same time it explains music through different scientific disciplines.
To see vocal cords in action, set the tempo of an orchestra, compose and perform with different string and percussion instruments, or a virtual harp, are some of the proposals in the exhibition which also has the collaboration of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT).
The 'Science Theatre' stands out among the novelties for autumn, which is also located on the first floor of the museum; an area where scientific shows are carried out, revealing concepts, techniques and processes that originate from the knowledge of science and technology.
New IMAX adventure
The Hemisfèric presents the IMAX film "Amazon Adventure" among its autumn novelties. This production tells the epic story of the explorer Henry Bates on his expedition through the Amazon which enabled him to make crucial contributions to biology. Bates identified 8,000 new species and most importantly put forth the first ever case for speciation, the means by which a new species is created. Charles Darwin called this the "beautiful proof" for his controversial theory of natural selection.
The two sides to sharks
This autumn, the Oceanogràfic concludes its shark campaign by celebrating the anniversary of the film 'Jaws' with the presentation of the film 'Shark' in 4D made by the BBC, and the 'SOS Tiburones' exhibition with photographs by Edgar Becerril, which reflect how man has become the main predator of these animals.
'Laminaría. El bosque del frío' is the only exhibition area in the Oceanográfic that includes animals such as the common seal, mackerels or puffins among which produce a dynamic interaction, and show the spectacular algae that produces a real refuge for biodiversity.
A big advance of a biological nature is the implementation of the genetic reservoir in the Mar Menor where we can find seahorses, Potamorrhaphis needlefish, silverside, known as 'xanguet’ in Valencian, or the marbled gudgeon.
