Now open at the Science and Industry Museum, Turn It Up: The power of music is an exploration of sound and creativity on a globally unprecedented scale. Featuring cutting-edge research, art installations, AI robots and more, the exhibition is set to be an unmissable celebration of music’s power and potential.

Running until Sun 21 May before beginning an international tour, Turn It Up boasts specially commissioned interactive and immersive art installations, intriguing objects and personal stories. Visitors of all ages are invited to make music together and play with beat, melody and harmonies in a newly commissioned musical playground.

Tracing the history of musical instruments from the pyrophone to today’s inconceivable technological advancements, the exhibition includes first-hand musician accounts, unseen inventions, MiMu gloves – gesture-based electronic music-making software invented by Imogen Heap –  and, on display for the first time, AI music robot Haile demonstrating its ability to improvise alongside human musicians.

Curator of Exhibitions at the Science and Industry Museum, Steven Leech, promises a space that will be ‘alive with music, fully immersing visitors, and bringing to life the mystery of music and the incredible ways that it impacts all aspects of our lives.’

Tickets to the Turn it Up: The power of music are available here.
