Description

Explore how music shapes our lives in this landmark interactive exhibition.

Why does music have such a hold over us? What is it about music that drives us to create, perform, feel, connect with others? After a hugely popular run at the Science + Industry Museum in Manchester, Turn It Up: The power of music moves to the Science Museum this autumn.

In this fun, family-friendly experience you’ll get a chance to hear, interact with, and even make your own music! You’ll explore the science and secrets around the impact music has on us with unique interactive exhibits.

Step into a newly commissioned musical playground, where you can play with beat, melody and harmonies.

Can you tell the difference between songs written by humans and machines? Take a musical Turing test to find out.

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 make gestures that control music-making software live on stage.

Discover weird and wonderful instruments like the Pyrophone, an organ powered by flames!

From exploring how technological advances can make music more accessible for everyone, to the ways in which music unlocks emotions and memories, Turn It Up is an unforgettable, hands-on experience where you can feel, remember and reflect on what music means to each of us.
