Jun 3 - Aug 31, 2017

The Museum of Making Music's fully interactive exhibition will introduce you to innovative instruments on the market today, and will open your ears and eyes to the many - perhaps surprising - ways that music is currently being made. Groundbreaking products showcased in the exhibition include the ROLI Seaboard Rise MIDI Controller, ROLI Blocks, Aerodrums, Stylophones, Phonotonic, Ableton Push, ATV aFrame, and Jamstik+.

In addition to these products, local sound creator, Dr. Chris Warren, will install a few of his own inventions including a body Theremin and the EchoThief Impulse Response Library. The EchoThief includes detailed sonic snapshots of resonant spaces. So if you want to hear what your favorite instrument sounds like played in Carnegie Hall or in the Cathedral Room of Shasta Lake Caverns without leaving Carlsbad...you can!

Hornswoggle

Aug 27, 2017

Have you ever wondered how a French Horn section would sound outside of the musical context of an orchestra or band?

Hornswoggle is a convivial group of horn players of all ages that are brought together to practice and perform French Horn ensemble music. Many of them are hobbyists, others are band/orchestra directors, free lancers, professionals, private horn instructors, and high school and college music students.

The ensemble is conducted by San Diego Symphony's Principal horn emeritus John Lorge.
