The Cadolzburg Experience: On the Use of Sound in a Historic Museum

The museum at Cadolzburg Castle in Germany, opened in 2017, uses a sound installation to present aspects of the building’s history that could not be materially reconstructed. In this article, curators Sebastian Karnatz and Uta Piereth and sound artist Gerald Fiebig explain how the installation alternates between sound effects and musical signifiers to engage visitors with their environment and to spark reflection on the problems of “authenticity” in museums. While the musical thread offers quotes from musical styles representing the castle’shistory, the sound thread gradually deconstructs a “castle soundscape” inspired by film soundtracks.
