»lichtklangphonogramm« is one of two winning projects of the open call »Musik Sehen« on visualising sound and music in the context of the Music Ethnology Collections of the Berliner Phonogramm-Archiv, which was conceived by Elke Moltrecht for Humboldt Lab Dahlem as part of Probebühne 1 at the Ethonological Museum in Berlin.
