While the “Museum of the Moon” has already toured urban spaces in China, Australia, the UK, each installation in the coming year will take place with a soundtrack by Dan Jones, a composer and sound artist.

“As it travels from place to place, it will gather new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies, as well as highlighting the latest moon science,” said Jerram.
