The Design Museum has announced an online curated tour of sell-out exhibition ‘Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers.’ The virtual tour will allow viewers to experience the exhibition from home.

Visitors will start their virtual journey by exploring some of the inventors and trailblazers of electronic music including Daphne Oram, before heading into the birth of house and techno music in pivotal cities such as Chicago and Detroit.

“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.”
