Title Sounding Museums
Person and role
Description Sounding Museums 9/4 2019, 14.00-17.00 Room B251 Within recent years sound has played a more and more prominent role in museums. Fine art galleries now ingrate sound as part of the aesthetic expressions exhibited meanwhile several cultural history museums add sound designs to strengthen the narration and affect of the historical content. This seminar is dedicated to such auditory dimensions of the museum. Gathering researchers and practitioners within the fields of sound design, ethnography, media history and sound art curation, we invite to an afternoon with presentations and discussion of how to deal with sound in museum: how is it designed? What are the aesthetic benefits and compromises? How can historical and distant worlds be evoked through sound? And how is all this experienced by the visitors? The presenters’ background and approach to these questions differ. What they to share is their approach to museums as Sounding Museums. Confirmed speakers are: James Mansell (University of Nottingham), Erik Brattlöf & Anton Ahlberg (Red Pipe sound design), Rasmus Holmboe (University of Copenhagen), Robert Willim (Lund University)
