If you were asked to imagine the future and create its soundscape, what would you come up with?

An exhibition last month in the Netherlands attempted to answer the age old question "what does the future hold?"

Bizarre Sound Creatures, held in Eindhoven, housed a multitude of awe-inspiring synthesizers accompanied by workshops and performances. The theme of the exhibition was to imagine a world with the particular twist of creating new musical objects with odd appendages and surprising interfaces, to resemble instruments evolving into organisms.

“A GREAT MUTATION OF SOUND PRODUCING OBJECTS HAS STARTED. IN THIS NEW DIGITAL ERA, MATTER IS NOT A LIMIT ANYMORE. INSTRUMENTS ARE EVOLVING INTO CREATURES OF SYMBIOTIC INTERFACES, ALIEN SOUNDS AND MERGED VISUALS… IT IS TIME TO MAKE A JOURNEY THROUGH THE MOST BIZARRE SOUND CREATURES OF THE FUTURE AND EXPERIENCE A NEW MUSICAL UNIVERSE FOR YOURSELF.”

The exhibition ran from October 17-25 and boasted a neatly organized schedule with various activities, workshops and performances throughout each day.
