Two highlights from the Museum of Science and Industry’s Sound and Music Late this March are the unveiling of results from the HookedonMusic experiment, and a silent disco to cap the night off.
HookedonMusic is the museum’s mass citizen science project, which has been running since June 2014. It asks the public to help scientists investigate what makes particular songs catchy, using computer-adaptive testing to analyse their listening habits. Almost three years later, enough data has been captured to announce the results – with this Lates platform providing the perfect setting.
The evening-ending silent disco, meanwhile, offers a chance to discover (and rock out to) HookedonMusic’s top tunes.
Entry is free but advanced booking is recommended to guarantee entry.
