World of Music | Tropenmuseum, Amsterdam | 2010, part of long-range project 1994 – 2010
In the new, permanent exhibition about music and musical instruments, interactivity plays an important role. Besides showcases dedicated to instrument groups, visitors can select images, sounds and brief information on touch screens. In addition to the interactive exhibits, there are two small studios. Have you always wanted to learn to yodel or exercise Mongolian overtone singing? In one studio you can get a small crash course while in another you can record a song which you can send to yourself electronically. There are also films to be seen about the rambling nature of instruments. The experience of music in a playful manner is the centre point of the exhibition.
