Experimental music weekender Supersonic Festival has announced details of a free festival-curated museum exhibition, as well as details of two of its 2015 art projects.

Supersonic's Bees In A Tin project, in collaboration with multi-disciplinary art group Many and Varied, will feature presentations and demonstrations by "artists whose work crosses between the arts, science, technology, and games". The festival will also play host to the Moog Sound Lab, which will see Birmingham disco duo Free School, composer Sarah Angliss and industrial-pop producer Gazelle Twin produce new music with a host of synths and electronic instruments.

Supersonic has also announced details of All Ears, a free exhibition curated by the festival inspired by vintage musical instruments from the Birmingham Museum archives. Manchester art collective Owl Project and artists Sarah Angliss, Morton Underwood and Paul Gittens have created new work for the exhibition, which runs from 1-14 June.

The festival is headlined by the Will Gregory Moog Ensemble, led by the Goldfrapp keyboardist and featuring Portishead's Adrian Utley, The Pop Group, and the debut live outing for The Bug’s collaboration with Dylan Carlson of Earth.
