Sacrum Profanum regularly explores graphic scores. Their tradition dates back a long way, and the music that results from them is frequently unexpected. It is now time for their latest iteration: architectural scores or urb<s>core from urban score and the language of architecture. Soloists from the Hashtag Ensemble treat architectural forms of urban environments as scores for improvisation. By following the rhythm, order, texture and forms of buildings, they translate them into music. And so the musicians read the iconic and forgotten jewels of Kraków’s architecture. The combination of architecture and soloists (#archi-solos) features Marta Grzywacz performing the Administrative Centre of Nowa Huta (known as the Doge Palace), Wojciech Błażejczyk brings to life the Way of Four Gates, Krzysztof Kozłowski – Cricoteka, while Hubert Zemler the Płaszów Locomotive Depot.
