London’s Design Museum’s “Electronic” exhibition will now run from 31 July until 14 February 2021, allowing many more to be able to attend this exhibition dedicated to the birth of electronic music.Full title “Electronic: From Kraftwerk to Chemical Brothers”, the socially-distanced exhibition follows the pathway from the birth of electronic sounds being used in jazz and rock, through experiments from Japanese composers and acts like Silver Apples, through to the work of Kraftwerk, the birth of rave, Aphex Twin and finishing with modern day Chemical Brothers. There are light installations, a plethora of equipment and a soundtrack supplied by Laurent Garnier.

Tickets need to be pre-booked and social distancing carefully observed, but this, as many visitors have stated, is the closest you’ll get to that being in a club feeling for a while…

On a related note, Simeon from Silver Apples passed away on September 8 at the age of 82.
