Seeing Music / Teaser

The Ethnologisches Museum of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin houses the world’s largest and most unique collection of musical instruments along with historical audio and film documents. The “Seeing Music” project developed two formats to present and convey these audiovisual media, staging the music as spatial images. This was preceded by a multi-stage competition between diverse concepts, of which two were then realized: Melissa Cruz Garcia, Aleksander Kolkowski, Matteo Marangoni, and Anne Wellmer were inspired by the existing material from the era of wax cylinders to build new sound machines which they presented in the installation “lichtklangphonogramm – an exhibition of historical and invented, optical and mechanical sound machines from the era of the wax cylinder phonograph.” Daniel Kötter recomposed historical film material and in “participants and objectives – 8 takes on filming music” showed eight new music clips in scenes designed by the architects’ team raumlaborberlin.
