October 12, 2013–January 5, 2014: Come and explore the technology, creativity and craft behind modern pop songs in this new, original exhibition that offers unique, fun and inspirational experiences around the writing, recording and performing of music.
The focus of the exhibition is on creativity and the use of modern technology in understanding and experiencing what it takes to create music. Discover the science and engineering behind musical instruments and music technology through hands-on exhibits and programming. Our goal is to inspire teens, young adults and families to create their own music and explore the connections between music, creativity, science, technology and the brain.
For the first time in our history, Science World has teamed up with community partners and music industry leaders to make this exhibition a reality. Roland Canada and its corporate partners are supplying music-related technology and equipment. Nimbus School of Recording Arts, Music BC, Tom Lee Music, Invoke Media, Macklam and Feldman Management, Watchdog Management and Fritzworks Printing are a few of the other partners that have come on board to help design, create and participate in this exhibition completely built from scratch at TELUS World of Science.
AMPED is proud to be featuring the music of HEDLEY and Hey Ocean!
