On this website we will constantly publish new calls for the next Darmstadt Summer Course (29 July to 14 August 2016). The calls will all be similarly structured, so that the essential facts are easily to be found at first sight. At the end of each call we will summarize the application procedure. Most of the calls are for Summer Course participants only.

Call for Musicians: Chamber Sessions


For participants of the instrumental courses (limited number of participants)
Tutors: Yaron Deutsch, Gunnhildur Einarsdóttir, Lucas Fels, Eva Furrer, Ernesto Molinari, Dimitrios Polisoidis, Håkon Stene, Geneviève Strosser, Marcus Weiss (coordination)

From now on registered participants of the Darmstadt instrumental courses can inscribe for the Chamber Sessions. The tutors have chosen works by Summer Course participants and are offering to rehearse these pieces together.


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.
