This week in the Full Circular, it’s a goodbye to concert halls, as we explore the unexpected places music can emerge in different circumstances. It’s true that often these landmarks of architecture contribute as much to the musical experience as the concert itself, but in their absence, innovative and memorable experiences can emerge.

From Daria van den Bercken performing on the back of a car in Amsterdam, to Full Circle members recording opera from the comfort of their homes, we look at how responding to different constraints can produce something memorable.
