Design Museum’s New Electronic Music Exhibit Recreates the Club Experience

Keep the dist-dance — a new museum exhibit aims to replicate the concert experience, particularly within the dance music realm. The Design Museum of London features a brand new exhibit on the history of electronic music. Featured acts include the Chemical Brothers, Kraftwerk, Jeff Mills, Frankie Knuckles, Aphex Twin, Daphne Oram, and Jean-Michel Jarre.

It’s described as follows:

Evoking the experience of being in a club, the exhibition will transport you through the people, art, design, technology and photography that have been shaping the electronic music landscape.

With live shows and entire tours canceled in 2020, this museum seems like the ideal way to experience music and gain some knowledge without the risk of large-scale events.
