Sound Room

The Sound Room, which is designed in the style of the Biedermeier-period, has proven itself an enriching addition to the museum in the Schumann House Leipzig. Its aesthetic appearance and multiple uses allow the room to connect the history of the house to the current vibrant purpose as a museum, event location and musical primary school. 

The centerpiece of this room is the sound installation of the artist Erwin Stache. To him, it was crucial that “the visitor has the possibility of musical play in the room. The objects hanging from the ceiling are either from Schuman’s time or indicate technological inventions of the time.  Every object, when you stand beneath it, causes tones, noises, or entire musical pieces to sound.”

The Sound Room is open to every visitor, young and old, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on every weekend of the year, as well as during school holidays in Saxony. Additionally, the Schumann Society offers engaging workshops for school classes and adults alike, which enable participants to experience the Sound Room’s possibilities for experimentation in a group setting.
