Abstract

The publication deals with the time of pioneers in building "electrical musical instruments" in German speaking countries. It is based on a research project funded by the Austrian National Bank's "Jubilaeumsfonds" (project number 9382), where the popularisation of these instruments was in focus. Starting with the first attempts the development in the respective region is examined for the time between 1920 and 1945 using carefully investigated documents. After a short description of the roots going back to the 19th century the documentation continues with a critical evaluation of the constructions and their presentation in the 1920ties (especially Joerg Mager and Lev Termen and the reaction of experts and the public). Electro-optic and electromagnetic sound generation was invented in that time as well but appeared later on. There are examples for both principles in Austria and Germany reaching back to the 1920ties. A representative survey of press reports show the different estimations of the usability of electrical musical instruments by technicians, musicians and the public. The following decade is treated in several parts due to the political development in Germany. The first two years are mainly marked by the invention of the Trautonium, the Neo-Bechstein-piano, the Elektrochord and the Hellertion. This was the time when Berlin turned out as a centre for "electrical music", especially by activities of the "Rundfunkversuchsstelle" (radio research institute) at the University of Music and the Heinrich-Hertz-Institute. The first major public presentations at the Berlin Radio Shows took place in this time as well. After the year 1933 not only the political situation changed but the cultural preconditions for the usage of electrical instruments as well. The political convergence with the NS regime and the goodwill of the "ministry of public enlightenment and propaganda" played an important role. It turned out by the following development that the Trautonium, the electric organs by Vierling and the Hellertion by Bruno Helberger were used for official occasions. Vierling's "Grosstonorgel" was used during the Olympic games, on the other hand the development of Edwin Welte's light-tone organ was stopped for he was married with a Jewish woman. The work of Oskar Sala plays an important role in the area of conflict between technology, politics and music. As no detailed documentation of the work of Joerg Mager (who claimed to be the leading person in electro-music research) is available till now, this will be discussed in a separate chapter. A short description of the consequences after 1945 is followed by a detailed appendix: data of concerts, sound recordings, technical documentations and more than 600 patents. The book is based on extensive and original material, as it turned out by studying of secondary literature that many details are based on not provable sources. The facts are carefully documented using footnotes, the book is meant as a fundamental collection of sources for further scientific research.

Abstract

Qu’y a-t-il de commun entre la traduction du patrimoine littéraire mondial en langue wolof défendue par Boubacar Boris Diop dans le contexte postcolonial sénégalais, les négociations entre différents acteurs associatifs et institutionnels autour des routes de la mémoire de la dictature au Chili, l’hétérochronie sous-jacente à la « biennalisation » de l’espace urbain à Tirana dans l’Albanie post-socialiste, la mise en fiction documentaire de leur propre culture par les autochtones Kakataibo en Amazonie péruvienne, la création collective autour de la danse du Diable dans les Andes urbaines en Bolivie, l’effet de l’intégration des arts sonores dans un musée sur le genre artistique lui-même autant que sur l’institution, et la recréation collaborative des happenings d’Allan Kaprow à partir des scripts ? Aucune de ces contributions ne conçoit les patrimoines culturels comme des corpus établis d’œuvres du passé achevées qui feraient l’objet d’une conservation illusoirement neutre idéologiquement. Elles éclairent au contraire la patrimonialisation en tant que processus dynamique d’interaction avec la création, celle-ci étant entendue au sens large de production artistique, culturelle et sociale dont les enjeux sont aussi bien esthétiques que politiques et institutionnels. L’accent est mis sur l’impact spatial (local et mondial ; territoires naturels et espaces urbains), temporel (passé et présent) et institutionnel (littérature, musées, urbanisme, configuration du territoire) de collaborations interdisciplinaires qui impliquent souvent des négociations complexes entre les différents acteurs. Ces perspectives diverses contribuent ainsi toutes à mettre au jour ce que masquent souvent les termes de « préservation » ou de « conservation », à savoir la dimension performative de la patrimonialisation.
