Fascinated by the riddle of music creation, both in performance and composition, the investigators of this project aspire to unravel exploratory oriented experimentation (EE) in artistic practice. The project’s hypothesis postulates that this method, starting from sensorial observation and dynamic interactive exploration, offers a valuable aesthetic and epistemic tool for music creation.
Switched-On is an ensemble for new music with digital and electric instruments launched in autumn 2010. The ensemble consists of members of the Swedish Ensemble Ars Nova, including its artistic director Stefan Östersjö. The overarching artistic concept of the project is to further investigate digital and electric instrument through the interaction between composers and performers.
