The Science and Industry Museum in Manchester is opening a world-first immersive exhibition exploring the science of music’s mysterious hold over us and how it drives us to create, perform, feel and share.
Through specially commissioned interactive and immersive installations, personal stories, musical tracks, dance and music-making opportunities, never-before-seen musical inventions, first-hand accounts from renowned musicians, artwork, cutting-edge research and unique instruments – discover the science behind music and what the future holds for melody making.
From why certain music can make us feel different emotions and how it might influence what we buy, to how it can be used to boost health and wellbeing and improve sleep – Turn It Up: The power of music shows just how profoundly music can affect our lives with or without us knowing. The exhibition shows how scientists are investigating music’s effects on our minds and bodies and how innovators and musicians are expanding the possibilities of music making and creating new technologies to ensure experiencing music is more accessible for everyone.
Turn It Up: The power of music will be a riotous, hands-on experience that will encourage us all to feel, to remember and to reflect on what music means to us and the lives of others. Don’t miss out, book your tickets now.
Turn It Up: the power of music is the headline exhibition for Manchester Science Festival 2022, premiering at the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester before a national and international tour.
