The concert installation “Transduction” is a collaboration of Ensemble Mosaik, 16mm film artist duo Distruktur and KOMMANDO HIMMELFAHRT aka Thomas Fiedler.
Ensemble Mosaik was founded in 1997 by young instrumentalists and composers in Berlin and has developed, as an especially multifaceted and adventurous experimental formation, into one of Germany’s most renowned ensembles for contemporary music.
Its recognized high quality is not just based on its individual musicians’ outstanding talent. Most of them are founding members, enabling them to create a profiled and unique body of sound in a long-term, intense cooperation.
Ensemble Mosaik’s interest lies in the diversity as well as research into – and continued development of – contemporary music’s aesthetic concepts and forms of presentation. Particular emphasis is placed on collaboration with young, often unknown composers and on an egalitarian working method.
The ensemble has been working with numerous composers for many years, thus making it possible to develop music over the long-term in a collective process. Multiple works have been written for ensemble mosaik. Over 150 world premieres are in its repertoire.
Ensemble Mosaik develops thematic programs and concert series that reflect individual works in an overall context, focus current trends and test new ideas. In doing so, the concerts themselves turn into experimental setups, often beyond the contemporary music mainstream while crossing the borders to visual and performing arts.
In its two-part concert series audible interfaces, for example, the ensemble investigates the functions and consequences of applying computers to digital sound creation and reproduction in the creative process of composition and interpretation.
The ensemble was celebrating its 15th anniversary with the two-day concert project perspective matters in December 2012. It tests and stages the possibilities of different listening perspectives in a musical, visual and dramaturgic approach in cooperation with Distruktur and the director Thomas Fiedler.
Now they are presenting their newest collaboration, the installation-based concert project Transduction at Berghain.
