PhD Thesis

Objects of Electronic Sound and Music in Museums

University of Leeds / National Science and Media Museum

(October 2018 - ongoing)

 

Objects of electronic sound and music (OESM) have been collected by various curators working within the Science Museum Group over many decades. Collections of these electronic sound and music technologies that have helped to create and shape many of the sounds we hear every day are also growing in other UK-based museums and galleries such as the Horniman Museum. However, although acoustic and mechanical instruments have been exhibited in UK-based museums over many years, there exists a comparable lack of exhibition work around the design and use of electronic instruments and technologies. The aim of this research is, therefore, to provide a modern comprehensive account of the scope for collecting and exhibiting OESM by conducting research on modern global curatorial practice across various museum contexts in relation to these objects. Examples of curatorial practice will be drawn from music-focused museums, science and technology museums, science centres and art galleries.
