Experience Music Project


“Sound Lab” is an interactive gallery designed by Quatrefoil and the EMP in-house team. Visitors live out their rock-and-roll fantasies by playing solo or jamming with others. The Quatrefoil-EMP collaboration included the design, development and production of 18 custom musical instrument stations and 34 multimedia programs. In a June 2000 grand opening review, the New York Times said the museum’s “strongest point is a room called Sound Lab where visitors can learn in just a few technology-aided minutes how to play guitar, keyboard or drums.” The exhibit remains a museum highlight more than a dozen years later.
