Enjoy the museum's architecture in an exciting new way.

In partnership with MSCTY, we've commissioned two new pieces of music which respond to the architecture of V&A Dundee ' inside and outside.

Inside the museum, be carried away with a soundtrack by Japanese composer and percussionist Midori Takada. Inspired by the natural materials chosen by architect Kengo Kuma, Midori has created a spellbinding soundtrack to welcome visitors to the museum. Based on discussions with Kuma exploring his architectural vision, this new composition is a celebration of creative forces coming together.

Outside in the plaza, walk through our iconic archway and experience a new composition by Dundee musician SHHE. Inspired by the sounds of the water around the museum, its rugged exterior and unique location by the River Tay, the music reacts to the movement of the pools and the tides, in response to the time of day and the prevailing weather conditions. This installation has been developed in collaboration with artists and designers Tommy Perman and Simon Kirby.

Midori Takada's composition will be played at 10.00 and 15.15 each day inside the museum for 90 minutes, while SHHE's installation will play in the archway beneath V&A Dundee from 13.00 - 23.00 each day.

Both soundtracks are also available at www.mscty.spac.
