Bluebrain's Audio Companion to the Natural History Museum AVAILABLE TODAY

More info and MP3 download link after the jump...

Starting today you can download a free MP3 that contains music we've created specifically for the Sant Ocean Hall at the Smithsonian's Natural History Museum in Washington DC. The way it works is simple: Download the MP3 contained below and transfer it onto your iPod or other portable digital music player  -- headphones recommended :)  Begin playback of the track at the entrance to the Ocean Hall section of the Smithsonian's Natural History Museum (the large doorway just north of the elephant) and enjoy the exhibit at your own pace*.

To be clear, this is not an event that will take place on a specific date or time. We encourage you to do it alone or with others at your leisure. We will leave the music up as a free download for the entire summer. Thank you to the Smithsonian Institute for their help!

Click on the arrow to the right of the soundwave to begin download:

(*While the music was written with the Ocean Hall in mind, the running time of the track will likely exceed the time it takes to focus on this section of the museum. We encourage you to continue listening as you explore other areas as well. )

Enjoy! And feel free to email us with any questions--
