"I'll keep it short. Brutalism in architecture has been discussed, fought against and celebrated many times. Electronic music as an integral part of New Music has, for example, been presented in relation to brutalist architecture in the WDR concert series "Betôn Brut & Bruits" in 2018. In 2021 Roman Zheleznyak shared his associations on the theme here, and in 2022 Claudia Robles-Angel presented a selection of compositions and her thoughts on electroacoustic music and brutalist architecture.

But what am I doing here now? In my imagination, my piece of music, created entirely electronically on the computer, leaks out from the openings of a vacant brutalist building and transforms into something like a massive sound sculpture."
