What is SoundLAB?

Muziekgebouw has a unique collection of up to 100 bizarre, super interesting musical instruments that have been specially designed for us. Anyone can make music with them!

Wondrous musical instruments

In the SoundLAB, you can play on wondrous instruments, such as the Dato DUO, Toonpad, Formonium and the MODi. With these, you will create a completely new piece of music together with others. The aim of the workshop is to experiment with sounds, experience the fun of making music yourself, and invent new pieces of music in a creative way.
