A summer of music and fun at the Bloomfield Science Museum in Jerusalem! Guest exhibition by artist and builder Michael Bradke from Germany. More than 60 exhibits constructed from simple found materials invite viewers to try them out and create their own musical instruments. The displays are designed to stimulate curiosity and foster an intuitive grasp of musical principles such as rhythm, pitch, and the intervals between notes.
 
The exhibits are made of diverse materials include large sewer pipes, stone, wood, glass and plastic. Visitors are welcome to tap on the instruments, whisper into them, immerse them in water, change their size and shape, and create a wide range of sounds. Each exhibit invites you to touch, to activate, and to create your own music. No musical knowledge is necessary. The exhibition appeals to everyone. It encourages creativity while promoting cooperation and teamwork. 
 
Electronic music displays inside the Museum invite young people to expand their musical knowledge and create music.

 
 
 
Michael Bradke, artist and builder of musical instruments, is coming from Germany to set up his exhibition and instruct the Museum staff.                                                                                                                     Bradke interacts directly with the audience, introducing them to the principles of music. He demonstrates methods of constructing musical instruments out of diverse materials, combining science, technology, and music.
Bradke, who founded the Mobile Music Museum in Düsseldorf, Germany, takes his traveling exhibition to science and music festivals. He holds master classes and workshops for builders of art installations, and performs before professionals and the general public. 
 
 
 
Musica is presented under the auspices of the Goethe Institute to mark 50 years of diplomatic relations between Israel and Germany.
