Turn It Up: The Power of Music
Prepare to get hands-on, with your ears and hearts open, at the Science & Industry Museum's new major exhibition exploring the science of music's mysterious hold over us and how it drives us to create, perform, feel and share.
Make music together and play with beat, melody and harmonies in a newly commissioned musical playground. Find out how music can trigger emotions and memories, whether it can affect what you buy, and even what certain songs taste like. Take part in a musical Turing test and see if you can tell the difference between songs written by humans and machines.
Explore how technological advancements continue to push the limits of music and make playing music more accessible for everyone. Meet Haile the musical robot that can play and improvise alongside human musicians. See the groundbreaking MiMU Gloves, created by Imogen Heap and used by artists like Ariana Grande to use gestures to control electronic music-making software live on stage. Discover some weird and wonderful instruments like the Pyrophone, an organ powered by flames, and more.
A riotous, hands-on experience encouraging us all to feel, to remember and to reflect on what music means to us and the lives of others.
