Regarding the late DJ, Avicii, who died in 2018, “Avicii Experience” opens today in Stockholm. How might it manage the legacy of the star DJ?
Four years prior, the dance music scene lost the most prominent DJs: Tim Bergling, who used the stage name Avicii, passed on out of the blue in 2018 at the age of 28. He had ended his own life during a holiday in Oman.
The fresh insight about the unfortunate demise of the Swedish star DJ, whose actual name was Tim Bergling, shook the music world. His heritage, however, keeps on resonating right up ’til the present time.
‘Avicii Experience’: An interactive insight
Beginning February 26, the intuitive museum “Avicii Experience” in Stockholm will offer knowledge into his life and artistic work. Guests cannot just see his photos, recordings, and private belongings, yet additionally, pay attention to the unreleased music of the star DJ and remember cozy snapshots of his life. For instance, his youth room, where he began making music as a teen, has been reliably reproduced.
Per Sundin, co-founder of “Avicii Experience, ” in a meeting with DW,” emphasizes the exhibition’s interactivity. “You can go and see the studio where he recorded all his enormous melodies and into his home in Los Angeles with virtual reality glasses.”
Avicii’s musical legacy
Even though it’s been a long time since his elapsing, Avicii’s musical legacy is yet felt today. His fans commend the discography he left behind, and his impact stays solid in the music business.
In 2019, a little more than a year after his demise, Avicii’s third studio collection, “TIM,” was posthumously released. Its twelve tracks were finished and recorded with notes and messages from the DJ. Presently, video game engineers Hello There Games, in a joint effort with Avicii’s dad Klas Bergling, deified the uncommon DJ’s vision of encountering his music in an original game called “AVICII Invector.”
A past form had as of now existed during Avicii’s lifetime – and the game creators followed it. With the “Reprise Edition” of the game, a continuation hit the market in January 2022 that made fans’ hearts thump quicker. In it, players can inundate themselves in the realm of the Swedish DJ and explore through different Avicii music tracks – with the assignment of hitting the “musical beat.”
Avicii’s dad Klas helped in conceptualizing the exhibition. “We discussed everything with him,” Sundin says. “Today, just before lunch, we gave the whole family a special tour. They were very touched but also happy sad to me, ‘That was Tim.’ They had tears of joy and sorrow in their eyes.”
Likewise, the show is an approach to adapting to anguish – for a father and a whole country. Since in Sweden today, Avicii “is particularly viewed as one of the greats now – in a similar light as ABBA or Roxette,” emphasizes Mans Mosesson.
