Google has launched Music, Makers and Machines, an interactive electronic music exhibition featuring the history of electronic music
Hosted by Google Arts & Culture platform, the exhibition covers electronic music’s inventors, artists, sounds and technology in partnership with more than 50 international institutions.

Other highlights include 3D, spinnable images of 22 classic synths, 360-degree tours, countless photos and videos and profiles of some of the key figures, tracks, places and genres in electronic music history.
