re:sonance: using music as a tool when designing on heritage sites to facilitate or achieve resonance

The reverberation between music and architecture has been established for quite some time, but how can music be used as a tool when designing on heritage sites to facilitate or achieve resonance. The title so punctuated connotates history with sonance which means sound. Resonance as a leitmotif is also used as a conceptual lens from which to deepen the understanding of heritage. As a noun resonance is understood as the quality in a sound of being deep, full, and reverberating : e.g., the resonance of his voice. Figuratively it means the ability to evoke or suggest images, memories, and emotions: e.g., the concepts lose their emotional resonance. Philosophically, Hartmet Rosa describes resonance as the mutual dialogue/relationship and transformation of the subject and of the world. Heritage can arguably be seen as a form of resonance, but architecture can also create resonance. What happens to forgotten heritage / can a heritage site lose its resonance? Arguably, yes it can. How can we bring back the forgotten intangible heritage on a site? How about music which makes the intangible tangible?
