- Haus der Berliner Festspiele, Main Stage
In Ensemblekollektiv, four Berlin-based ensembles – Adapter, the Sonar Quartet, Ensemble Apparat and ensemble mosaik are united to form one collective body, build upon the extensive chamber music experience of the groups. This situation is of particular benefit to two composers: the Argentinian Eduardo Moguillansky carries out a “measurement of the human body” and investigates the secondary acoustic effects of physical performance actions on a range of instruments and technical devices. And the American Timothy McCormack also roots his work in a scientific interest: in his new piece “KARST” he pursues the notion that sound has a mass, that displaces air and is tangible as a physical object.
