MAZE Ensemble for exploratory music
MAZE is a new electroacoustic ensemble dedicated to performing music that challenges the idea of fixed form and a fixed listening perspective. The aim of the ensemble is to offer the listener different forms of navigating their own path in the music. This is found in not only the repertoire, but the musicians’ approach and their performance practice.
Encompassing repertoire from the experimental tradition of John Cage, Alvin Lucier, Tony Conrad and Robert Ashley up to the contemporary work of artists such as Christian Marclay, Elliott Sharp and ensemble members Anne La Berge and Yannis Kyriakides, the aim of the ensemble is to build a body of work that reinterprets the relationships between performer and music, and audience and performer.
