Summer of Innovation

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!

Infinity Cube

Apr 7 - ongoing

Birch Aquarium at Scripps is launching Infinity Cube, a new, immersive art installation that explores bioluminescence by combining glowing creatures with world-class science, high-tech projection and an original soundscape. Step into an 8-foot cube and become surrounded by video projections of single-celled marine organisms - called dinoflagellates - reacting to various stimulants such as the human heartbeat, music, water flow, and air pressure. Through activities and interpretation accompanying the installation, guests will have opportunities to learn more about the phenomenon of living light and how marine species use it for camouflage, protection and communication.
