Soundcraft GB2 Gets Interactive With Queen & Gibson Guitar

scraft_gb2.jpgThe British Music Experience has been heralded as the world’s first fully interactive journey through the incredible story of British popular music. The new exhibition, at the O2 Arena in Greenwich, London, features exhibits from Trad Jazz to Happy Hardcore and Bowie’s Ziggy outfit to Geri’s Union Jack dress from the Spice Girls, where visitors can watch, listen, play, sing and dance their way through 60 years of British music history.

A major exhibit at the BME is the Gibson Interactive Studio, where visitors can play on various guitars from the Gibson family, Slingerland drums and Wurlitzer digital pianos.
One exciting part of this exhibit allows visitors to actually mix the individual components of a track by Queen on a Soundcraft GB2 console and then compare their result with the original final mix to see how close they got.“As a British manufacturer who has been around for over 35 years of British music history, we’re delighted to have worked with Gibson on this incredible experience at the BME,? reported Andy Trott, President of Soundcraft Studer, part of the Harman International group of companies.

“I’m a musician and do as much music production as I can find time for at home, so I’d relish the chance to mix a classic track by a band like Queen, and of course with a Soundcraft console at the heart of the experience, you know it will sound great!?

The BME provides visitors with an unprecedented look at all musical genres from skiffle to reggae, rock n’ roll to blues and from punk to urban. For more information, visit http://www.britishmusicexperience.com/
