[en] The aim of this chapter is to outline experimental media archaeology
as an alternative method to a sense and object-oriented technology and
media historiography. The epistemological potential of an object and
sense-oriented experimental access to the fijield of the history of media
and technology will be discussed here on the basis of experiences in the
history of science and historically informed music performances. The heart
of the chapter is formed by a discussion of a series of media archaeological
experiments executed by the authors in search for alternative ways to draft
historical statements on past media practices. In these experiments, they
focus on the materiality of past-media devices, beyond their function as sign and evidence of the past, and on the heuristic possibilities offfered
by an experimental approach to these devices.
