The expansive exhibit will feature a half-hour Kraftwerk 3D show, and an Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall–designed 3D experience that transports guests into a live Chemical Brothers concert. The experience’s soundtrack is created by legendary French DJ Laurent Garnier, with Peter Saville of Factory Records fame handling graphics.

The “extreme visual world” that artist Weirdcore made for Aphex Twin’s “Collapse” project, and imagery from the now-defunct Manchester club Haçienda, are among the electronic music iconography that’ll be included.

Ahead of the opening, the Design Museum has shared a conversation between Detroit techno icon Jeff Mills and sound artist/designer Yuri Suzuki. Watch it below.
