This text analyses works by W. G. Sebald from the viewpoint of the paradigm of “musical historiosophy”. Contrary to heretofore interpretations, the author created a constellation of meanings associated with the dialectic of sound and subjecting to it the dimensions of spatial and visual presence. From this transition he derived the conception of the catastrophe both as an apocalypse of the language and a permanent disintegration of the world. Due to this shift of the analytical dominant the author constructed the conceit of “prosthetic memory”, i.e. one that cannot manage without a certain mnemotechnical surplus rendering possible a redistribution of traces of the past and history.
