Under the notion of dystopias (Dystopien), the ensemble NAMES approaches musical meanings of un-places or mis-places – as an antithesis to Thomas Morus’ notion of positive, likewise fictional utopia. In the context of a three-part concert series in 2023, various artistic positions dealing with dystopian sonorities and their heterotopias as “counter-placements or abutments, actually realized utopias” (Foucault) will be presented and put up for discussion.

Composers and sound artists are invited to submit their works dealing with this complex of themes or to develop new works.
