The Swiss Museum & Center for Electronic Music Instruments – or SMEM for short – has launched a Kickstarter campaign that aims to make The Playroom a reality. They describe The Playroom as “a place dedicated to learning about, playing with, and sharing the incredible history of electronic music instruments.”
The Playroom, otherwise known as heaven on Earth, is a Kickstarter project from SMEM. It’s part museum, part recording studio and it’s dedicated to the exploration and wonder of synthesis.
SMEM is situated in the Swiss city of Fribourg and currently plays host to over 5,000 synths, tape machines, microphones and effects. Displaying this gargantuan collection is only step one of their goal though.
The Playroom project aims to host a curated subset of their library in a fully connected studio, ready to record. There’s also an educational slant on the new space, hosting talks, workshops and a library of inspirational books on synthesis.
