Visitors will begin their virtual journey with an exploration of some of the trailblazers of electronic music before venturing into the birth of house and techno music in cities including Chicago and Detroit.

In addition, they will experience mind-altering audio-visual performances from Weirdcore for Aphex Twin, Smith & Lyall for The Chemical Brothers and Max Cooper.

“We’re delighted to be able to bring our sell-out Electronic exhibition online to music fans across the globe, from the early years in Detroit and Chicago via the fall of the Berlin Wall right up to the present, with specially created immersive content from the Chemical Brothers show directors,” said Tim Marlow, CEO and director of the Design Museum.

“Explore the hypnotic world of electronic music from your home and become part of the conversation as we launch with a Live Panel Discussion on Facebook.”

Tickets for the launch event can be purchased via Facebook’s new paid online events functionality, which was launched in August 2020.

Audiences can access current Design Museum exhibitions, Beazley Designs of the Year and Margaret Calvert: Woman at Work, as 3D digital experiences from November 24.

The National Gallery has also developed a new revenue stream amid COVID-19 by charging for an online tour of Artemisia, an exhibition dedicated to Artemisia Gentileschi.
