A new ensemble of international artists and musicians, working within the fields of contemporary experimental music, noise, improvised music, contemporary folk, free jazz and other experimental musicfields and traditions.
Ensemble E will be working under the leadership of Mats Gustafsson and will play a variety of graphic scores and game pieces, composed and initiated by Gustafsson.
Ensemble E will be focusing on the frictions and balances between solo music expressions and the collective interaction. The collective is making deeper research into traditional and non-traditional ways of expressing the folk music of Scandinavia, Portugal and Poland and how, by putting these traditions in entirely new situations, a radically new music can occur.
