SOUNDGARDEN

To celebrate 70 years of Darmstadt Summer Course we would like to set a visual spatial accent in the middle of the city of Darmstadt — SOUNDGARDEN at Karolinenplatz. With the opening project of the Summer Course, Vortex Temporum on 29 July 2016 at Darmstadtium with Rosas and Ictus, SOUNDGARDEN opens its doors as well — until the festival's final on 14 August 2016. A pavilion will be featured as a festival center but also as an information point and a small exhibition about the history of the Darmstadt Summer Course. SOUNDGARDEN will send a visible signal into the urban space.

OPENING: De Keersmaeker's "Vortex Temporum" on 29 July

Temporal whirl, temporal maelstrom – vortex temporum: the right metaphor for the opening of the International Summer Course for New Music in 2016. The Darmstadt Summer Course has existed for 70 years; it took place for the first time in 1946 at Kranichstein Hunting Lodge, before the gates of an utterly destroyed city. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's version of Gérard Grisey's masterpiece "Vortex Temporum" is the kick-off for a dense festival program with concerts, lectures, installations, workshops and interventions – almost around the clock, until 14 August!

We Spoke New Music : Call for Musicians

We Spoke invites musicians to work on a large scale version of Fritz Hauser’s conceptual work Schraffur during the Darmstadt Summer Course 2016. The work consists in scratching regularly the surface or string of any instrument (percussion or not) and to explore the micro differences in tone that come out of extremely slow shifts in position. All instrumentalists are welcome, we will be providing scratchable instruments and sticks to those who don’t have one. We will have a short daily cession from 3rd to 5th August, and a longer cession with the composer himself on 6th and 7th, culminating with a late morning performance on 7th August. If you like to take part, please e-mail
