A new music ensemble for the 21st Century, the [Switch~ Ensemble] is an initiative dedicated to the performance of works for chamber ensemble and electronics, the most integral element of our mission is the creation of new repertoire featuring the synthesis of the ensemble with multimedia elements and real-time interactive computer processing. These projects often require technological integration that is atypical of the current structural and organizational paradigms of new music ensembles. This necessitates direct collaboration with composers throughout the creative process, optimized for needs that differ radically from the creation and rehearsal of acoustic music and allowing for perpetual experimentation and refinement.
Our Ensembles-in-Residence include the MIVOS Quartet, the [Switch~ Ensemble], NOMOS Group, Brouwer Trio, and flute soloist Erik Drescher.
