The History of Electronic Music Exhibit Opens in Berlin

If you have an interest in music history, especially electronic dance music history, then this recently-opened exhibit in Berlin is something you should check out! Called “Good Vibrations,” the exhibit showcases some of the most iconic electronic instruments of the last 100 years, the instruments that helped shape music as we know it today.

Among those are an early Theremin produced in Russsia in the 1920s and a Trautonium, an early monophonic electronic instrument invented in 1929 by Friedrich Trautwein in Berlin. There is also the collection of iconic synthesizers, from the Fairlight CMI, to the Buchla music easel and the EMS VCS 3, among several other models on display. Alongside these vintage classic analogue equipment, visitors are also treated with a glimpse of the future through the selection of prototypes of new inventions on display.

Good Vibrations also features workshops and opportunities to play a selection of the instruments on display.

The exhibit currently runs at State Institute for Music Research at Tiergarten 1, Ben-Gurion-Straße, 10785 Berlin, Germany. Its run will end on June 25.
