Between March and October 2021, Open_Music produced a series of five albums called AUSSICHTEN (Prospects #1 - #5) as remote collaborations, with each musician contributing tracks from their respective home studios. This material was shared via a common cloud server (a workflow established in 2020 for the LAYERS series, also on Bandcamp). For each of the Prospects albums, a different member of the ensemble served as composer/producer, delivering impulses to the others in the form of musical notations, sound files, graphics, texts or videos. Together with Roderik Vanderstraeten, a member of the ensemble who is also a professional audio engineer, the respective musician formed the tracks into a finished album.

On the 3rd and 4th of December 2021, the ensemble and several guests convened at the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart for two days of audio/video recordings, for which the musicians chose highlights from their respective productions to serve as the basis for new improvisations. Together with several tracks suggested by the pianist Jürgen Kruse, who had played on several of the albums, and improvisations to the film TUNNELSCAPES by Michi Meier, the result is Prospects LIVE.

In the notes to the individual tracks are links to the corresponding video by Michi Meier on Vimeo.
