“LOW: The Power & Beauty of Bass” is the museum’s most interactive and participatory exhibition to date. It focuses on sounds below 262 Hertz on the frequency spectrum and the instruments that make them.
Guests can see, hear and feel bass waves. They can also play with an array of bass instruments including Kala U-BASS — an amplified ukulele bass, with very thick strings — a Fender Precision Bass, a Gold Tone bass banjo and a hollow-body Martin acoustic-electric bass.
“Our overall goal with this exhibition is to raise awareness of the essential role that low-register instruments, sounds and rhythms play in a musical setting. We hope that the exhibition opens a door to a new sonic world and that visitors young and old will be inspired to listen differently to music and the world around them,” said Carolyn Grant, executive director of the museum.
The exhibit opened earlier this month and will run until July 31. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $8.
