Klangfarbe Museum

Klangfarbe Museum is a sequence of site-specific performances that respond to the acoustic qualities of the museum building and the objects displayed within it. These objects, acting like sound vessels from the past, reveal the atmosphere of daily life, for example: the sound of a plough as it struggles through the mud; fish caught and stunned under the ice; a shepherds horn; a cowbell; a hoe as it breaks hard soil. The project has developed through collaboration between visual artist Julie Myers and musicians Natalia Kasperczyk baroque cello, Pawel Nowicki percussion and Simon Rose baritone saxophone. Their live performances are soundscapes that offer a contemporary interpretation of the museum and its archive.
