Digital Vocal Booth

Social Room, Block A,
Leicester College Freemen’s Park Campus
LE2 7LW,

This installation will enable participants to read the works of famous authors, poets and singers and experiment with speaking their words in a rhythmical and fun way – similar to rap music. They will be able to listen back to their recording and play with the way their voice sounds with this easyto-use, interactive music and vocal looping booth. Providing a creative and alternative approach to conventional learning, the aim is to encourage people to read English literature by making it more appealing, while helping them to retain knowledge by associating it with music and rhythm and melody.

Suitable for 16+
