All the world is a stage for the Paris Chamber Orchestra, which has treated residents of Paris’s 12th arrondissement to a spectacular show as musicians perched upon balconies overlooking the Place d’Aligre market square.

Pierre Sauvageot’s composition mixed music with the apartment building’s own natural sounds and words spoken by its residents in an idiosyncratic symphony Sauvageot likens to a dialogue.

The Paris Chamber Orchestra’s open-air concert of city sounds travels to Marseille in October before heading to Belgium, Austria and the United States.

FRANCE 24's Nick Rushworth reports.
