ZeitRäume Basel – biennial festival of new music and architecture
The second "ZeitRäume" festival will take place from 16 to 24 September 2017 at over 20 venues in Basel-Stadt, Basel-Landschaft and the three countries corner of Switzerland, Germany and France. Connecting lines, water courses and the crossing of boundaries are at the heart of this unusual biennial festival which brings together architecture and new music.
Remarkable productions at the interface between music and architecture will be created by numerous artists from Switzerland and other countries. There are about 70 events on the programme: walk-in architectural musical instruments at the CIBA car-park, resonating waterways in St. Alban's valley, a grand piano that lands on the roof of the Warteck Tower, over 50 alphorns gathered on the Münsterplatz and many more events that invite audiences to go on exciting explorations of space with their eyes and their ears.
