Comparing universes of sound
In its attempt to represent the Earth, geography often relies on topography. Depending on your point of view, rivers and mountain chains may constitute elements that either divide or connect.
Are Italy and France united or separated by the Alps?
Connected by the Danube, the territories of an empire that imploded a century ago were split up along linguistic and religious lines. In situations like these, music has always tried to build bridges, pave roads and encourage dialogue.
Following the paths laid out by Couperin and Brahms, Brainstorming Day aims to provide reflection and insight into music’s role in bringing people together.
