Plus-Minus Ensemble

Plus-Minus is a London-based collective committed to presenting new work alongside landmark modern repertoire. Formed in 2003 by Joanna Bailie and Matthew Shlomowitz, Plus-Minus is distinguished by its interest in avant-garde, conceptual, and experimental open instrumentation pieces such as Stockhausen’s 1963 classic, from which the group takes its name.

Plus-Minus regularly performs in London at Kammer Klang and City University, is regularly broadcast by BBC Radio 3, and has played at the Borealis, Cut & Splice, Huddersfield, SPOR, Transit and Ultima Festivals and at Fundación BBVA in Bilbao. The group also works with student composers and has given workshops and concerts at Bath Spa University, City University, Durham University, Guildhall School of Music, Huddersfield University, Stanford University and the University of Southampton. Plus-Minus has worked with composers such as Peter Ablinger, Laurence Crane, Johannes Kreidler, Bernhard Lang, Mauro Lanza, Trond Reinholdtsen, James Saunders, Alex Schubert, Jennifer Walshe, and will next work with Cassandra Miller.
