Kim Ludwig-Petsch (PhD student)
What is the sound of a laser blaster – and why? Let’s discover some basic physics of sound and acoustics with surprising and fun hands-on experiments. If you are not a Star Wars enthusiast, you might be more interested in the question, why different instruments sound differently playing the same note. This talk will give you an entertaining overview of the mechanics of sound and it will give you the option to be part of the experiments.
How the digital turn changes our way of thinking about our past
