The sound of the city

Rockcastle had an invitation for a closed evening visit to 'Het Vleeshuis' and took me along. Just a few images and pretty concepts. You can see at the bottem the 'Nun's trompet', in paintings sometimes payed by angels. This instrument imitates the sound of a trumpet since only certain people were allowed to play the trumpet. The copper instruments were made in this atelier. The pretty organ played dance music, although one wasn't supposed to dance without permission of the police, because 'the shameless dancing going on inside, was imitated by the countless street urchins outside'. Every exhibit in the museum has a number, typing it in on a small computer you'll hear the sound or the song. A fun museum.
