A museum called Our House intended to “explore the evolution of dance music, told through six chapters and countless interactive installations” is set to open Friday, October 29th in Amsterdam.
Each section of the museum explores the beginning, future, culture, and community of dance music and ends with a “4D experience” titled “The Culture (Ride).” Throughout the experience, attendees can expect narration from DJs such as Carl Cox, Kevin Saunderson, and Charlotte de Witte. Music lovers can also interact with equipment famously used to produce dance music such as Roland‘s TR-808 synthesizer and TR-809 drum machine.
Our House is located on the former site of iT, one of the earliest house music clubs in Amsterdam. On top of the interactive exhibits, the museum will also feature photo galleries and documentaries detailing the history of electronic music culture.
The institution also offers a full-fledged DJ academy offering online and in-person courses. They range from event organization to Ableton basics to music production.
Speaking to Dutch publication Entertainment Business, museum co-founder Jereon Jason said, “Our House will first and foremost be an immersive experience focusing on the journey that house music has made and is still making.”
