The Ensemblekollektiv Berlin is a unique, collaborative body of sound comprising four renowned Berlin contemporary music ensembles: Ensemble Adapter, Sonar-Quartett, Ensemble Apparat und ensemble mosaik. Under the direction of Enno Poppe, they present the world premiere of a reworked version of composer Michelle Lou's piece "In the Land of Milk and Honey" in early April. The concert also features a performance of Poppe’s own work “Procession”, for large ensemble, which the composer says has taken him to “unprecedented” points in his compositional practice. Michelle Lou’s compositions are characterised by abrasive, austere materials that develop a far-reaching narrative scope. The music of Enno Poppe marked by movement, often rising from elementary musical gestures into ecstatic states.

Biographien

Michelle Lou composes mainly in the realm of electro-acoustic music, both in hardware and in computer based forms. She has also created large scale sound installations which are often performative and collaborative. Her work has been presented at Wien Modern, Donaueschinger Musiktage, Darmstadt Ferienkurse and Bludenzer Tage zeitgemäßer Musik, amongst others. She is a professor of composition at the University of California San Diego.

Enno Poppe is one of Germany’s leading composers. He received commissions for compositions from ensembles throughout Europe and beyond, from orchestras including the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the WDR Sinfonieorchester, and also from festivals including the Donaueschinger Musiktage, the Salzburg Festival, among others. The ensembles that regularly perform his music include Ensemble intercontemporain, Ensemble Modern, Klangforum Wien and Ensemble Resonanz.

Four internationally recognized ensembles from Berlin – Ensemble Adapter, Sonar Quartett, Ensemble Apparat and ensemble mosaik – are cooperating to form a common orchestra: Ensemblekollektiv Berlin. This special constellation based on chamber music structures is not just unique for the Berlin cultural scene. The ensembles involved are each characterized by long-term experience, interpretations of the highest quality and clear profiles.
