Creative Sound Space
“A sound in itself cannot be defined whether it is musical of not. It's simply a sound. Whatever sound it may be, it becomes musical when it finds its place in a piece of music.”
Playing with sounds, approaching them from many angles, circling around them, climbing inside, disassembling and reassembling them. How is sound created? How can it be controlled? What are its characteristics? What does it have to do with light, space or time? What kind of experience does it offer you? You can find the answers to all these questions within this space. The eight different installations present different sides to an infinitely rich world of sounds. You can play music in the Creative Sound Space even if you may never have had the opportunity to play musical instruments.
Remember, there is no wrong sound! Have fun!
The new exhibition of the House of Music Hungary, the Creative Sound Space, awaits visitors with eight large-scale, uniquely designed sound generating installations. In this free-play area, anyone can try themselves out as the conductor of the Orchestrion virtuoso robot-orchestra, or record their first sound recording in the Creative Recording Studio, create four-part rhythm compositions on the Rhythm Vehicle, or admire how the sounds of a hundred-year-old electro instrument, the Chladni-Theremin create the most beautiful geometrical patterns.
The aim of the House of Music Hungary is to bring the world of music closer to as many visitors as possible. In addition to the highly successful permanent exhibition, the now-opening Creative Sound Space is another stop on the exciting journey of exploring the world of music. After learning about music history and musical diversity, the House offers visitors the magical and community experience of music-making.
