The collection of media-historical musical instruments on the Sound Arts course at the Bern University of the Arts is based on donations, such as those by the artist couple »SA/JO« Sabine Schäfer / Joachim Krebs, as well as acquisitions and bequests. The instruments are available to the students and are part of teaching programmes on the programming and musical use of these historical relics. The lecture deals with the references of the collection to the artistic-scientific-philosophical process of EndoMicroSonoScopy, which Joachim Krebs developed as a compositional strategy in the 1990s. 
 
Prof. Dr. Michael Harenberg studied musicology, composition and received his doctorate in media studies. His work focuses on experimental virtual models of the digital and the physicality of electroacoustic music. Harenberg is Professor of Composition and Media Theory at the Hochschule der Künste in Bern and heads the »Sound Arts« program. In winter semester 2016 he was Edgar Varèse guest professor of the DAAD at the TU Berlin.
