Beside mechanical musical instruments developed in the early twenties of the last century and operated by sophisticated light- or air-controlled devices this visit will comprise the first Austrian TV-studio (1950) and a demonstration of a laser vibrometer with a discussion of results obtained with it (research on fortepiano soundboards and violins; in a cooperation with the Vienna University of Music some students used the vibrometer for investigations of kettle drums, violins, and cellos), an introduction to a restoration project (a Neo-Bechstein grand) where electroacoustical research was necessary to find the appropriate material for the strings, and a guided tour through the gallery of musical instruments.
