Discover this major new touring exhibition that explores the science behind music’s mysterious hold over us and how it drives us to create, perform, feel and share. Prepare to get hands-on, with your ears and hearts open.
Learn about 35 pioneering research studies featured together for the first time, exploring music’s impact on different aspects of our daily lives. Uncover 12 personal stories illustrating just how unique everyone’s relationship with music is.
The exhibition features several films of scientists and music makers and several listening points with music ranging from classical to pop, electronic to hip-hop. Throughout the exhibition visitors are invited to discuss and contribute their own musical favourites. Which song brings back strong childhood memories? What is your favourite music and how does it make you feel? What music would you share with a friend to give them a boost?
The exhibition was developed in consultation with a Representation and Inclusion Group which included charities for sight loss, autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, musicians with disabilities, underrepresented young people and deaf children. Visitors with all abilities are encouraged to engage and learn from interacting with various musical experiences, highlighting the power of music as accessible to all.
