Germany is getting another museum devoted to electronic music.

Tresor founder Dimitri Hegemann has revealed plans to open an electronic music museum in Berlin.

The museum is set to open in autumn 2016. While no location has yet been announced for the venture, it’s due to arrive in time to coincide with Tresor’s 25th anniversary.

“I will call it the Living Archive of Elektronika, ‘cause techno here in Berlin is still a living, inspiring and vivid movement,” Hegemann told Insomniac.

The museum isn’t the only new techno-focused Hegemann plans to open. In 2014 he announced his intention to open a techno club in Detroit in an abandoned factory to draw connections between the US city and Berlin’s industrial roots.

The Living Archive of Elektronika is the second techno museum scheduled to open in Germany over the next years. In April, Frankfurt club owner Andreas Tomalla signalled his intention to open the Museum of Modern Electronic Music (MoMEM), in the city, with a projected opening date of 2017. [via Mixmag]
