Originally, “Parcours” is an athletic-artistic discipline in which the athletes follow the direct route through a city, despite any buildings or obstacles that might stand in the way. The bass player and band leader Sebastian Gramss works according to the same principle. He creates sound routes across the street grid, sampling surrounding sounds and using them as material for a jazz quintet and a music robot. An acoustic inspection of a place which leaves postcard views and traffic rules far behind, opening up entirely new, hidden perspectives of the city, even to natives of Cologne.
