The title already reveals it: the location of musical action is not the concert hall or stage, but instead the city with its public spaces. The project determines a part of these public areas as a sonic space, picks up musically on characters and design characteristics of urban space, thereby blending urbanity and experimental music to help shape public areas. Composers and musicians of the Darmstadt Summer Course explore the city in an open-air laboratory, focusing on its sounds and acoustic impulses. This collaborative process creates ensemble pieces for concrete urban situations which are developed over the duration of the Summer Course.
