[Switch~] Ensemble$10Bold electroacoustic and multimedia-focused ensemble premieres works by Chicago composers.
Switch On! teams composers from the University of Chicago with [Switch~] Ensemble, one of the country’s most sought-after contemporary music groups devoted to the performance of electroacoustic and multimedia works. With world class players and sound engineers in their ranks, [Switch~] Ensemble’s productions are invariably displays of both instrumental and technological virtuosity. The culmination of year-long composer-performer collaborations and a week’s residency at the University of Chicago, two concerts at MANA Contemporary and Elastic Arts will showcase seven premieres specifically written for [Switch~], as well as other works from the ensemble’s repertoire.
