Ensemble Pamplemousse @ BOP STOP

Composer/performer collective Ensemble Pamplemousse was founded in 2003 to provide a focal point for like-minded creators with a thirst for sonic exploration. The ensemble is a close-knit group of divergent artistic personalities, emergent from training in disparate musical fields. Their collective love for the exquisite in all sonic realms leads the ensemble to persistently discover new vistas of sound at the frayed edges of dissective instrumental performance technique. Compositions aggregate each member's unique virtuosic talents into extraordinary magical moments. In the flexible moments of performance, the ensemble weaves together shapes of resonance, clusters of glitch, skitters of hyper action, and masses of absurdity into impeccable structures of unified beauty.

Ensemble Pamplemousse brings new flavors and objects to a new form, a new piece, a new experience. Instead of discrete pieces filling out your typical concert, the composer-performer collective has co-authored a piece of strange magic, an exquisite corpse of exquisite corpses, a work sending each members' talents and specialties skittering across its surface. This concert-length set has been developed collectively by bringing together everyone's favorite sounds and materials together into one exhilarating combination, developed by all. What better way to reach the sublimely absurd than mashing up musical identities?

"In [this New York composers’ collective’s] music, the absurd dances with the sublime, and playfulness collides with rigor."- Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader
