The Secretary of Tourism of the autonomous community, Francesc Colomer, has opened the new exhibition 'Play. Science and music' in the Museu de les Ciències, where he stressed that "it is another example of our commitment to collaborative government".

In addition, Colomer underscored the importance of "uniting two fields like science and the arts, specifically music" and emphasised that "both are two levers for transforming the world, because without science and music everything would be very different".

In this sense, the head of Tourism stressed that "in these times of pandemic, science cannot stop, but neither must music" and he emphasised "the need to promote collaboration, to share knowledge to capture solutions".

The opening was also attended by the General Director of the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències, Enrique Vidal, the Director of the Science and Education area of the Parque de las Ciencias of Granada, Javier Medina, and the Director of the Museo Interactivo de la Música de Málaga (MIMMA), Miguel Ángel Piédrola.

The 'Play. Science and Music' exhibition is produced by the "Parque de las Ciencias de Granada" in collaboration with the "Museo Interactivo de la Música de Málaga" (MIMMA). The showing deals with the relationships between the arts and sciences, and teaches physics, biology and mathematics through music, at the same time it explains music through different scientific disciplines.

To see vocal cords in action, set the tempo of an orchestra, compose and perform with different string and percussion instruments, or a virtual harp, are some of the proposals in the exhibition which also has the collaboration of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT).
