The HIPEX project traces, reconstructs, and documents historical practices in the performance of experimental post-WWII compositions, deepening our understanding of the role of the performer in the establishing of new repertoire and new performance aesthetics.
This project investigates the relationship between physical and sonic gesture in the context of a piano-percussion duo, by means of a collaborative, experimental process of exploration, composition, performance and critical reflection.
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.
