A NIGHTMARE IN G MINOR is a 45min horror sound experience created by Synth House Chicago Museum. The performance will be showcasing the Moog One synthesizer - one of the most highly anticipated synthesizers of 2019. We’ll be encouraging guests in attendance to be creative with their smartphones during the performance. So if you like creative writing, writing poetry, or if you like creating digital artwork - please let the music aid your creative process. Guests are also welcome to lie down during the performance. So close your eyes and absorb the vibrations; let the sound waves guide you through this sonic journey.

We will provide yoga mats but you may also want to bring a small pillow and an eye mask. (recommended but not needed).

The official date and time of the performance will be announced soon. Stay tuned for more information.

The new Ashun Sound Machines (ASM) Hydrasynth keyboard is an eight-voice synthesizer with rich options for sound design.

We’re very excited for this instrument and there is a great possibility that we’ll have one available for use this Fall.

Synth House Chicago Museum is a space dedicated to electronic musicians and sound designers. We are a shared workspace located inside Music Garage Chicago housing a collection of high end electronic music instruments that are available for our guests to use. The idea is that you book a workstation, bring your own recording gear, and work in headphones. The museum has a total capacity of 6 Workstations (6 bookings per Session).

Whatever you record, is yours to use. Museum Sessions: Museum Sessions are fixed at 4 hours and the museum will have 2 sessions each day we’re open (an afternoon and evening session). Museum Sessions cost $30. Booking a workstation grants you (+1 GUEST) exclusive access to that workstation for the reserved Museum Session. Think of a Museum Session as one 4-hour class/time slot.

Want to try other workstations during your Museum Session? No worries - you and your guest are welcome to move to another UNOCCUPIED workstation at any time. You and your guest may ONLY OCCUPY ONE WORKSTATION PER BOOKING. Reserve more than one workstation to combine gear.

Booking a Workstation: You can ONLY book Museum Sessions online. We will be using Schedulicity, the same online booking software Music Garage Chicago uses for their services. Sign up here: https://bit.ly/2DVXMcW

The Synth Collection: The whole collection available is growing and we would like to change some of the instruments every quarter. Please help us choose which machines to make available each season. The instruments available right now are listed below ⬇️

Training & Technical Support: There will always be staff onsite to assist you when needed. There will also be free WiFi to utilize YouTube & other tutorials for further support.

More Questions? Feel free to message us! We’d like to hear from you!
