Throughout the 2014 International Summer Course for New Music, the correlations between Darmstadt's scientific and artistic nuclei resonated. In his ‘Greeting’ note in the Summer Course programme booklet, the Mayor of Darmstadt, Jochen Partsch, describes the Summer Course as ‘an artistic laboratory … in which new works are presented and developed, in which musicians from all over the world find a forum for exchange and experimentation’. As in previous years, the Summer Course took place at various locations around Darmstadt city, which ensured the establishment of a vibrant learning environment. In turn, Darmstadt the ‘Wissenschaftsstadt’, or ‘City of Science’, also inspired old and new musical debate.
