MSCTY (Musicity) presents a series of short, single-track music performances and playbacks by 10 Estonian musicians next to buildings in the Põhja-Tallinn district that inspired each piece of featured music. MSCTY works collaboratively across the disciplines of architecture, music and acoustic engineering to lay out alternative routes of experiencing contemporary cities. The interface it creates between sound and space aims to reveal the depth nestled in the acoustic qualities of our urban landscapes. Music and architecture share remarkable affinities, both relying on structures spawning rhythm, ruled by proportions, aiming for harmony. By reintroducing musical practice to a variety of spatial situations, the intent is to renew the shared pursuit of emotional beauty and experience within architecture.
