The project „Sarajevo: Sampling a City"" by Oliver Salkic is a homage to Sarajevo -- a city which like a microcosm reflects middle and southern European history. This history is told by the facades of the city's buildings that seem composed of four layers: Ottoman, Habsburgian, socialist and post-modern periods of administration. From these four epochs, single facades were taken as samples and arranged in a new form. Together with four musicians, these arrangements were transferred to modular, graphic notations and then interpreted acoustically.
