The Science Museum Open Call For Electronic Musicians

The Science Museum in London is recruiting electronic musicians to contribute to an upcoming exhibition on the history of electronic music, where the restored Oramics Machine will be on display. A series of workshops exploring the history of electronic music are planned, with participating artists getting the chance to go behind the scenes of the exhibition before it opens in autumn.

To apply, email by 12pm on 30 May, explaining (in 300 words or less) why you love electronic music, what kind of music you make, how you share it with others, and how much you know about the history of electronic music. Participants need to be available to go to the Science Museum on Tuesdays in June or July. For more info click here.
