The Music Factory at Hunderfossen is a unique and innovative attraction that offers visitors an immersive experience of music, art, and technology. The attraction is a 4D experience that combines music played by the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, a beautiful animated live-action animated film experience, fun special effects, and interactive play with colour to sound. The thread of the whole experience is synesthesia – a real phenomenon that a certain percentage of the population experience. This is a cross sensory experience, where some parts of the sensory system involuntarily are affected by others. The most common version is the ability to see colours and shapes when listening to sound/music. Many famous composers “suffered” from this, such as Mozart. In the Music Factory, the audience is included in this world in three different parts, and are made able to create their own visual interpretations of music on a surrounding interactive wall/room.
The Music Factory is a magical world of sound, colour, and joy that takes visitors on a journey through the fascinating world of music. Visitors are welcomed by the animated Music factory workers in The Music Factory’s reception area, where they are taken into the factory’s fascinating world to get to know Herbert, Clara and numerous animated characters.
In the Prelude the visitors get to experience a beautiful and fun acoustic piano concert, “performed” by animated characters on a large LED screen behind a self-playing Yamaha Disklavier.
After the Prelude, visitors are treated to a brand new 4D film from The Music Factory, specially made for Hunderfossen. They put on 3D glasses and join Herbert’s world, immersing themselves in the action where air pressure, wind, water, soap bubbles and other surprises are involved!
In the final interactive room visitors can create their own colours to music on giant 32 x 4-meter interactive wall – where the whole family can work together to colour instruments. Here they can also eat in the popular taco restaurant themed with colour games on the sky and with music from The Music Factory.
The Music Factory is an experience that visitors are guaranteed to find nowhere else in the world. It is an attraction that offers something for everyone – from artainment to live action and everything in between. It is a colourful, musical firework that excites both young and old!
