In a survey to determine the instrument most emblematic for the 20th century, the electric guitar would probably be high on the list. The miniature sound pickups under its strings opened up a gigantic experimental field for many thousands of musicians, extending from the historical blues up to current compositional practice. Raphaël Cendo, a passionate fan of the full, animalistic sound effervescent with vitality, frequently composed for this instrument. He collaborated with Yaron Deutsch in the creation of his new work and has invited him to a dialogue alongside a wildly compiled band of other instruments ranging from the Baroque theorbo to the electronic organ and the Asian mouth organ to the Balkan cimbalom. Music by Vitalija Glovackytė from Lithuania, Zeynep Toraman from Turkey and Feliz Anne Reyes Macahis from the Philippines are included on the programme of the Darmstadt Summer Course for the very first time.
