Museum Altes Zeughaus
New Permanent Exhibition
The Museum Altes Zeughaus Solothurn was re-opened on June 17, 2016. After two years of renovation and interior redevelopment, one of Switzerland's largest exhibitions of historical armaments and weapons is open to the public once more.
For this new permanent exhibition, Idee und Klang have realised an eight-channel sound installation for the cannons on display. Tangible sounds of fired off cannon shots, their flight movement in space and ultimate impact, together with subtle, abstract soundscapes blend in a bleak and menacing overall picture.
