A three-part suite of installations paint the soundscapes of music that preceded, defined, and descended from the Woodstock Festival.

A free-flowing model of interactivity puts the music up front in this triptych of interactive music stations. One station introduces the music of the 1960s to illuminate the musical backdrop leading up to 1969; another showcases the songs and bands of 1969, including the complete performance schedule of Woodstock; and the third allows visitors to explore the musical landscape regarded as the legacy of the festival and its cultural impact. The unusual, undulating interface lets people rapidly browse genres, themes, and years to scan the sounds of the Sixties and beyond, or follow narrated tour tracks through highlights in each period. Backend database tools allow the center’s staff to add visitor-suggested songs and other content to these interactives.
