Explore music at your own pace and in many different ways with Play me! Suitable for all the family, Play me! is an interactive installation set up similar to an arcade. It allows you to play with sound and make a whole lot of noise by triggering live performance, interactive electronics and playback. Play me! was previously installed at The Space in London and at the Barbican.
