I transgress borders and boundaries

New Music by the New Maker Ensemble from London

‘I transgress borders and boundaries’ is an interdisciplinary concert that brings together a programme of composers, artists and researchers in search of elemental histories. From stone to soil and ice to water, the concert delves into deep time transformations of one living planet and its more recent encounters with human forces. By sharing a voice with a multitude of life-forms, the programme seeks to tune in to matters that come to matter, and that simultaneously embody our past, present and future.

The New Maker Ensemble was formed in 2014 as a laboratory for experimentation with various forms of new music and performance art, welcoming and bringing together individuals of different backgrounds. Through a permeable culture of collaboration and interdisciplinarity, the group has developed extended notions of what music can be or interact with.

The programme is performed by Roxanna Albayati, Sara Rodrigues, Rodrigo B. Camacho and includes pieces for voice, cello, piano, electronics and organic materials:
