Haus der Musik - Vienna

Haus der Musik - Vienna is a modern interactive experimental museum in the historic city center of Vienna, where the Vienna Philharmonic was founded. Infotainment, Edutainment and Entertainment – these are the three catchwords characterizing the Haus der Musik - Vienna, offering the visitor a lively introduction to the history of Austria’s great composers.
From the impressive encounter with the great masters of music and their favorite instruments to the contemporary electronic field of experimentation, the Haus der Musik puts one thing in the spotlight: the sound.

The interactive exhibition areas offer new, innovative approaches to the topic of music and invite visitors to interact with the most diverse sounds interactively. For example, the world's first Viennese waltz dice game turns the visitor into a 3/4-time composer: 8 x dice, and from the 8 random melody throws the personal, perfectly composed Viennese waltz is formed. With the virtual conductor it is possible to play famous melodies together with the Vienna Philharmonic. The musicians obey the conductor, follow his pace, his rhythm, and gladly reward him with applause. But the patience of the virtual orchestra is limited. Who does not keep the clock, experienced a surprise.

Four Austrian universities, two foreign university institutes, a young team of musicians and musicologists, multimedia artists, sound engineers, architects and students were involved in the development of the interactive sound museum on 5000 m2. And the result is just as varied as the noise qualities surrounding us every day. Starting with the background noise that a baby hears in the womb, to the music of the future, the adventurous visitor takes home a wealth of impressions.
