Have you ever heard about Soundmuseum situated at the ''Pushkinskaya-10'' Art-Centre?
It is not a traditional museum in a regular notion. You won't hear anything like ''Don't cross the line!, don't take photos!, Don't breath on the chef-d'oeuvre!''
Soundmuseum is an interactive museum where the guests can play almost every instrument like theremin, variothon or utyugon.
These enthralls all the children of all the ages and gives a sense of being an avant-guard musician for a while. The museum-guides can willingly teach you playing all the unusual instruments (most of that you'll never find anywhere else). You can also watch the video-records of the concerts including these instruments.
Using the interactive Map of St. Petersburg you can take a sound-tour around the city and immerse yourself into the sounds of splashing Neva or carillon of the Peter-Pauls fortress.
You can even see the sound: the graphic-scores collection presents music with the visual language of signs. This tradition goes back to ''December 1952'' by Earle Brown and the ''Notations'' book by John Cage.
But Soundmuseum is not only an interactive museum of the nontraditional contemporary music. It is also a concert stage for free improvisation and sound experiments. Musicians from all over the word play here and communicate with each other in the language of improvisation.
Soundmuseum is a place that is worth to see in St. Petersburg after you visit the Hermitage
