Sound Sources. Everything is Music!

11 Novembre 2023 - 1 Septembre 2024
Weltkulturen Museum

Sounds determine our everyday lives and can be heard all around us, even in what seem to be the quietest moments. Every single place has its own soundscape, shaped by our immediate surroundings, by animals and people, by their actions and interactions. How does the setting affect the perception of what we hear? How do the environment, sound, people and music relate to each other?

These are the questions we will be asking in the exhibition SOUND SOURCES – and in the process investigating the Western concept of music, too. The sounds themselves will take a starring role here, along with their cultural application, interpretation and meanings. As well as instruments, the show will contain several exhibits that wouldn’t necessarily be expected in an exhibition about music. Based on the museum’s own collection, SOUND SOURCES will enter into a dialogue with contemporary music and encourage visitors to reflect upon the significance of sounds in their own lifeworld.
