For the second year in Sónar+D, the She STEM collective gathers together a group of teenage girls approach them to the STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) through a workshop with the aim of encouraging vocations in this fields.
In the workshop "Olfactory Scale", the participants will make some synaesthetic exercises to relate smells, shapes, colours, and words. This information will be coded and linked to sounds, knowing that each smell is a note, and that three notes form a chord (as in music).
With these chords, the participants will generate a collaborative choreography that will be translated into a musical scale of their olfactory perceptions. A piano mapped on the floor will act as a sound trigger, and samples will be activated when the keys are pressed.
She STEM has the support of Barcelona Activa and its program STEAM Barcelona.
