What is it?

Dreamachine is an immersive experience with music and light, designed to be enjoyed with your eyes closed. 

It is inspired by an extraordinary 1959 invention by artist Brion Gysin, described as the ‘first artwork to be experienced with your eyes closed’. The 21st Century Dreamachine has been created by a team of leading minds in architecture, technology, music, neuroscience, and philosophy, including Turner Prize-winning collective Assemble and Grammy-nominated composer Jon Hopkins.

Dreamachine is at Murrayfield Ice Rink, from Saturday 13 August until Thursday 25 September.

Tickets for the experience are available now. All tickets to Dreamachine are free, but are selling out quickly.
