Music Space Architecture is an international, multilayered project dedicated to exploring the relationship between music and architecture, sound and space. At its centre is a festival that brings together commissioned musical performances, audio-visual installations, a film programme and an interdisciplinary conference. MSA gathers academic and artistic writings, reviews and other published materials into the online platform (lanching in 2022). MSA appeals to the domains of time and space in musical and architectural discourses, architectural acoustics, the dependence on (or avoidance of) numbers and, most importantly, the sensory experiences of the listener entering into a dialogue with space and sound. Ultimately, MSA strives to present differing approaches to synthesizing the inaudibilities of architecture and the invisibilities of music.
The project was founded in 2018 by Sasha Elina and Yuri Palmin.
