Music Listening / Teaser
In the future Humboldt-Forum, the unique character of the extensive ethnomusicological collection will be reflected in a unique “Listening Space”, equipped to the latest technical standards. In the Humboldt Lab project, members of the Department of Audio Communication at the Technische Universität Berlin tested a fully equipped model space which was about 30 percent smaller than the future one. “Music Listening” was an experiment, both in terms of its technology and its content. It endeavored to make different acoustic and visual programs tangible using a unique acoustic playback system. Beyond this objective, it also tested new approaches to exhibition design and involved the development of an innovative prototype for the presentation of a comprehensive sound archive.
