A musical composition as a persistent commercial and a concert as a TV show. Why not? A child of New York’s multicultural and multi-stylistic musical scene, the ensemble or, in fact, a contemporary chamber orchestra founded in 2011 presents a programme modelled after the principle of American TV commercials. In this programme, works by the cult figure of American minimalism, Frederic Rzewski, just like commercial spots on the TV, constantly cut into the opuses by the young generation of American composers – Daniel Fishkin, Sang Song, Moon Young Ha and Pascal Le Boeuf. New York is a melting pot of various nations, and it comes as no surprise that this ensemble of fanatical experimenters is so multinational.
