Google move into the electronic music space with the launch of a free exhibition

Google has dropped another big piece of news. This one is the delivery of a free online exhibition that celebrates the history of electronic music.

The story delves into the background technology and multi-genres that make up the ‘electronic sound’ and champions the pioneers and legends of the game.

The exhibition is hosted by Google Arts & Culture platform and is available on desktop, Apple, and Google Play.

It is a collaborative project between several international institutions focused on electronic music.

It will also have playable augmented reality, which will let users see iconic synthesisers and other DJ gear in three dimensions. Computer reality is just one of the parts where the background technology becomes part of the celebrated theme.

Tours will be 360 degrees, and online attendees will be able to access rare footage of historic music studios.

The intuitive nature of the exhibition starts by asking users what they would like to learn about. The list includes tech, music, club culture, or a beginners guide all around.

It features deep-dive history lessons into some things that have shaped club culture as we know it and honours the contribution of pioneers to our beloved scene including gay pop icons, the ballroom scene and sound-system culture.

Berlin’s Berghain and their 90’s clubbing scene are also part of the exploration process. An early release of some of its features has been released.
