Museums of Bangalore: Indian Musical Experience

Watch the video here: https://youtu.be/xuSdTK4XeoI


Overview: I thought Bangalore just had 2-3 museums which are well known until a few years ago, but a little research opened up my thoughts as I discovered several museums within the city. I have decided to visit all the museums in the city and document those. 

The first one on the list is the Indian Musical Experience in JP Nagar 7th phase. This beautiful museum is dedicated to the evolution and science behind different forms of music from traditional to contemporary. 

As we enter the museum, in the inner courtyard, we can see a sound garden, where we can learn about the sounds created from natural things like wood, stones, and metals. We can try our hand in generating music as well. This area is well enjoyed by both adults and children.

We then get inside the museum and the experience starts from the 3rd floor, where we are shown a small animated movie with different types of sound created by nature. From there we enter an interactive exhibit area, where we can play music through a touch screen and create notes from different musical instruments. One small area is designed to look like Commercial Street with pathways and autorickshaws where music is continuously playing.

There is a learning centre as well where one can create and record sounds using Karaoke. There is a Bollywood and Sandalwood section as well which shows the story of music in Indian cinema.

On the 1st floor, we can see around 100 different types of musical instruments displayed for the visitors. The exit area passes through a store where visitors can shop for souvenirs.

Overall a very good experience, and a must-visit for people from South Bangalore.

  4. Dear The Light Baggage (Arun:)

    THE PROJECT

    I am writing people who have posted a substantial number of photographs of Karnataka temples on the web. I am currently assembling a comparative data base of Hindu temples in India, Java, Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam constructed between 600 and 1300 C.E.. The database currently contains 3GB of original content, consisting of 650 heavily annotated photographs, selected from over 2500, as well as 100 diagrams and site surveys.

    The site has been developed for American students and researchers, though all the material is available on an open source basis without any advertisement. My colleagues documented most of the temples on brief site visits with original photography. This was supplemented by third party material for monuments they didn’t visit or where the documentation was inadequate. To date all forty-one extant Khmer temples have been included in the database and, perhaps, an equal number of Karnataka temples in more or less chronological order. We have eight more Hoysala temples to add. (We have not yet begun work on the temples in Java and Bali. )The site’s url is www.templemountains.org You will find links to the materials on the Karnataka temples are at the bottom of page 2 of the site.

    WHY WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE

    We have not been able to find adequate photographic documentation for one temple and hope that you either1) already have this content or 2) might be willing to document it for us. The temple in question is the Ramesvara in Ramanathapura. (Bibliography: ASMAR 1936, 10-11; Hardy, 1996, Plate 112, Fig.78c, S7.) We are interested primarily in the Hoysala vimana and gudhamandapa; the prakara and gopuram are later additions. If original photography proves necessary; a current cell phone camera should offer adequate quality. We would specify five or ten shots on a site plan we have drawn. We would, of course, pay your standard license fee for a one-time use of existing photographs, as well as, reasonable costs should a trip to Ramanathapura prove necessary. You would retain the copyright to the photographs; we would ask only for permission to use them in this database. If interested, please contact me with specifics at lgd@newsreel.org.

    ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR COOPERATION

    We are also eager for the site to be used as widely as possible, especially by visitors to these temples. If you feel it would be appropriate we would welcome your mentioning www.templemountains.org on your own site. We would, of course, reciprocate when we add a bibliography to the site Since all the material is “open source,” you may incorporate any of it in your sites if you think your users would be interested. Thank you.

    Best Wishes,

    Lawrence Daressa, Ph.D., Site Developer, Temple Mountain Database Project, Center for Southeast Asia Studies
