Ensemble for New Music
The Ensemble for New Music, with Mindaugas Piečaitis as provisional director, is one of the University of Music Karlsruhe’s significant groups, working on a project-by-project basis. Its membership varies, depending on respective musical requirements. The ensemble is an essential basis of the New Music on the House venture, with goal of studying and performing new works from composition classes as well as current works by other composers. For master of contemporary instrumental music (MAZMI) students, participation is equally obligatory, as important a part of the course as for composers. The ensemble is open to participation from students in all instrumental and vocal areas as well as live electronic and computer music. All concerts in the sphere of contemporary music are also projects of the Ensemble for New Music of the University of Music Karlsruhe. In this way, the ensemble functions as an integral part of our future-oriented university.
