Swiss non-profit SMEM (The Swiss Museum & Center for Electronic Music Instruments) has launched a Kickstarter to raise funds to create The Playroom, a place dedicated to learning about and playing with classic electronic music instruments.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
The Playroom will be a beautiful open space created for people to take advantage of the huge SMEM (Swiss Museum & Center for Electronic Music Instruments) collection. Here we’ll also host lectures, workshops, classes, and more. And for a hands-on experience, The Playroom can be rented for private recordings, events, and parties.
We believe that the best way to share such an unparalleled collection is through experiencing it firsthand.
In fact, many local and international musicians like Yello, Sophie Hunger, Hinako Omori, Timber Timbre, Legowelt, Alienata, Franz Treichler from the Young Gods and more have already visited our collection. They have all agreed with our approach: the collection has to be usable. That’s why we need The Playroom.
