CONNECTIONS presented by Ensemble mise-en and ACFNY
Ensemble mise-en is a New York-based contemporary music collective led by composer Moon Young Ha. Comprised of talented young musicians, ensemble mise-en strives to bring a repertoire of challenging new sounds to diverse audiences, wishing to impart an experience that is simultaneously multicultural, intellectually stimulating, and aesthetically pleasing. Ensemble mise-en performs throughout the U.S. and maintains offices in Brooklyn, NY.
The Austrian Cultural Forum New York (ACFNY) is presenting New York-based ensemble mise-en performing world premieres and US premieres of three Austrian and three American-Korean composers as part of their CONNECTIONS concert series.
The two concerts will showcase solo and ensemble works by the composers Sungji Hong (Korea/Texas), Mirela Ivičević (Croatia/Austria), Peter Jakober (Austria), Seong Ae Kim (Korea/NYC), Matthias Kranebitter (Austria) and Sojin Yoon (Korea).
Taking place at the ACFNY, Part 1 will feature works written for solo instrumentation accompanied by electronics and includes a public talk with the musicians and composers.
The second evening of CONNECTIONS will take place at the cell, a space and platform for artists and musicians to share their new and innovative work, where ensemble mise-en will perform ensemble works of the six composers.
