Did it ever come across your mind of how music works or specifically, how musical instruments produce sound and connect together to create music? If you're curious of how it works, Petrosains is the perfect place to discover this innovative phenomenon.
This is some of what you'll experience.
Lemur's multi touch technology makes it possible to touch the interface on the screen and start playing.
Check out this never ending piano which has huge keyboards, introduced by Roger Shepard in 1964.
This exhibit gives you a chance to explore music tunes from phonograph, gramophone, turntable and CD.
Aspiring disc jockeys can attempt their first spin by scratching back and forth across the turntable by following the tutorial and notice how the sound changes.
You can even make your own rhythms, by simply pressing the buttons and see how well you did.
There's another awesome invention where you could listen to many genres of music from all over the world by putting on the earphones and plugging the device on the white dots.
The giant panpipes is also one of the big attractions. This amazing exhibit explains as you create your own masterpiece by hitting the ends of giant pan pipes with rubber paddles.
My little princess can't resist running her fingers along the sensors. This stringless magical harp can produce harmonic sounds of piano, flute, saxophone, guitar, etc. Sounds cool, right?
The exhibition had been travelling around the world for the past couple of years and has finally arrived at Petrosains, Suria KLCC. The Science of Music runs until the end of March.
There's even a chance to win some fabulous prizes too. All you need to do is visit the Muzika exhibition at Petrosains and answer 5 online quiz questions to participate in the contest. Who knows, you might stand a chance to win some PlayStation 3(PS3), Nintendo Wi or iPod Touch!

Hi Life Ramblings, I too love music.ReplyDelete
When time to settled down I looked for a wife who can play the piano.
Found one, but can't cook.
Then found another one, can cook cannot play piano.
But sings like a canary, so took her. No regrets.
I must check out what you posted here. Looks interesting.
I love that harp pic.
Oh ya, here practically every Chinese girl plays the piano or musical instrument....boys too.
And every year Kiwanis music festival, Chinese kids as young as 7 sapu the top prizes for playing piano, etc.
Wish I can. Have a nice day, Lee.

Hopefully when I go there one day the exhibition is still intact.
Thanks for sharing LR. Have a nice day.
the melody appears to rise or descend endlessly in pitch. that's why it's called the never-ending piano.

Maybe can drop by KLCC and go to Petrosains one of these days to see the exhibition.
