Musicity x Tallinn Architecture Biennale

Musicity brings its architecture-inspired music and sound art programmes to Tallinn.

Musicity x TAB 2019 is launching as part of Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2019 Satellite Programme.

_Eight new tracks inspired by architectural gems and lesser-known spaces of beauty in North Tallinn

_TAB 2019 Satellite Programme is curated by Estonian architect Kirke Päss and showcases accompanying exhibitions and creative ideas in various locations in the heart of Tallinn during Tallinn Architecture Biennale TAB 2019

_Free public walking tour starting at Põhjala Factory on 14 September, featuring live music and talks

Launching as part of Tallinn Architecture Biennale 2019, Musicity x TAB 2019 will see eight sites located on the Northern side of the Estonian's capital city, spanning Põhjala, Kopli and Noblessner, come alive with new music created especially for each site.

Musicity works collaboratively across the disciplines of architecture, music and acoustic engineering to lay out alternative routes of experiencing contemporary cities. Profoundly akin to the biennale’s topic “Beauty Matters: The Resurgence of Beauty”, the interface it creates between architecture and music aims to reveal the intimate depth nestled in the acoustic qualities of our urban landscapes. Beyond physical surfaces and volumes, a world of deeper emotional connection awaits.

Participating artists include electronic music pioneer Aivar Tõnso; experimental violinist and singer Maarja Nuut; composer and DJ Sander Mölder; guitarist and live-electronics artist Argo Vals; new classical/trad accordionist Tuulikki Bartosik; electronic soundscape artist Taavi Tulev; jazz singer Rebecca Kontus; singer and electronic producer Mart Avi.
