ŠALTER ENSEMBLE

Šalter Ensemble je mednarodni projekt v obliki ansambla, ki ga sestavljajo glasbeniki iz štirih držav: Švice, Srbije, Hrvaške in Slovenije. Prihajajo iz različnih vetrov sodobne glasbe, jazza, eksperimentalne glasbe, improvizirane, tradicionalne ter popularne glasbe, skupno pa jim je udinjanje v vodah svobodne improvizacije in razvijanje lastnih zvočnih izraznosti. Ansambel izvaja štiri kompozicije članov zasedbe (Denzler, Crnić, Grom in Roža), ki so jih pet dni vadili in ustvarjali v Studentskom Centru v Zagrebu, pod okriljem mednarodnega festivala sodobne glasbe Izlog suvremenog zvuka, kjer so 6. maja premierno izvedli repertoar.

Šalter Ensemble is an electroacoustic ensemble of improvisers compound of some of the most innovative figures in the music scene of Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia and Switzerland. Four persons – each one being an integral part of the ensemble – developed an exclusive concept for this ephemeral group. The body of these concepts has been worked out in the course of a residency at Izlog Festival Zagreb in May 2017 and will be presented several times by the end of the year. Šalter Ensemble is a unique project on the edge of free improvisation and composition, where collective processes form the core of the music. The ensemble plays four new pieces by Bertrand Denzler, Tomaž Grom, Roko Crnić and Robert Roža. Artistic Direction: Jonas Kocher
