Explore and play with sound online! Sonic Futures is a series of digital experiments that will help you discover our collection of sound technologies—and have a go at experimenting with sound yourself.
The digital exhibits on this page will allow you to experiment and play with sound and explore the museum’s Sound Technologies collection.
Echo and Sound Postcards are now available—check out the interactive Echo Machine and try out its sound effects, and listen to sound postcards made during lockdown. In the next few weeks, you’ll be able to discover a new music-making machine inspired by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. As well as being fun to explore, your involvement in these online activities will help us shape our upcoming exhibitions.
Discover the magic of the Echo Machine, an interactive online experiment that lets you explore the amazing sound effects of the echo.
