New Google Arts & Culture exhibition of electronic music
In this exhibition, you will find a lot of material and experiences to enjoy as you go through the history of electronic music.
You will find an extensive archive of photos and videos, 360° tours, sounds, and experiments with augmented reality. For example, one of the experiments invites you to create a recording studio in your home by creating a virtual space with the help of AR, while discovering the functions of 5 iconic synthesizers.
And of course, you will be able to meet some of the musicians who were key in the development of this genre, vintage synthesizers, the behind-the-scenes of the recording studios, songs, among other curiosities. And so you can take advantage of all this material, Google divided some of its contents into different categories.
For example, for those who want to take their first steps in electronic music, you will find a mini-guide inside “A total newbie”, or if you want to go straight to the music, you can choose “Just here for the music”. In this section, you will find the different types of electronic music genres as well as their main references.
In “A technological nerd” you can take a tour through all the technology, techniques, and instruments that shaped electronic music. And you can even have a 3D view of some of the most famous synthesizers. And if you are interested in the culture behind this style of music, you will discover the history and design of famous nightclubs in different cities, under “In the club”.
On the other hand, if you are a teacher, you can download the study guide provided by Google to use all this content as an educational resource.
