Whales compose, bullfrogs chorus, songbirds greet the dawn, and people everywhere sing and dance. What do we all have in common? Long before the advent of iTunes, the musical instinct ran deep. Wild Music explores evidence for the biological origins of music through highly interactive exhibits and exceptional sound experiences, and – in the process – expands our understandings of what makes music. With its multicultural content and careful attention to accessibility Wild Music offers broad appeal for diverse, intergenerational audiences.
Visit the official exhibition website to take a virtual exhibition tour, build soundscapes, hear animal sounds, and more.
Wild Music: Sounds & Songs of Life is a production of the Science Museum of Minnesota, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and the Association of Science-Technology Centers. Major funding comes from the National Science Foundation, with additional support from Harman International Industries, Inc., and NEC Foundation of America.
