This is a list of resources on site-specific music. I use this term to describe music conceived to be performed by human, acting bodies outside the concert hall, museum space, church, dance club, etc. In-situ music performances is another possible term to describe this practice. I list composers, ensembles and festivals and background texts. This website is a result .
