Youth Music Box exhibition opens in London

The UK’s largest music charity, Youth Music, has launched Youth Music Box - a new hands-on music exhibition in London.

The show features instruments and professional video and audio technology from across the group of Roland companies, including Roland, Boss and Edirol..

Research commissioned by the Youth Music charity, found that high numbers of young people have been inspired into making music through experimenting on music-based console games.

Based on these encouraging results, Youth Music has launched Youth Music Box at London’s Southbank Centre.

Young people enter the exhibition in groups, within which they collectively choose one of six musical styles (reggae, drum and bass, urban, afro beat, classical and disco/electro).

They then choose a sample track to practice playing along to with some of the latest digital technology, before a live recording session gets underway.

The recording is professionally filmed and edited with Edirol equipment before being placed on Youtube.

The equipment at the exhibition includes Edirol MIDI keyboards, a Roland TD-9K drumkit and a Roland SP-555 sampler.

Youth Music Box is located on Level 1 of the Royal Festival Hall, London, and will be open from 11am - 7pm daily until 31st August.

The hands-on exhibition will then tour the country to celebrate Youth Music’s 10th birthday.
