WHO WE ARE :
The New Maker Ensemble comes together in 2014 as a laboratory for experimentation with various forms of new music and performance art. It welcomes and brings together individuals of different backgrounds, assuming difference as richness rather than threatening otherness. Through a permeable culture of collaboration and interdisciplinarity, the group has developed extended notions of what music can be or interact with. We stand holistically and investigatively before our ever-changing environment in its multiple dimensions and always approach creation critically.
OUR GOALS :
The development of a sharp sociopolitical consciousness, both in terms of content and form, is for the NME a prime concern, permanently reconsidering the implications of treating music as art and questioning its role in contemporary societies and communities.
We aim to foster the creation and circulation of new pieces
of work, relevant to the art-world today, both locally and
globally. Additionally, we seek to immerse our community
in a rich, yet familiar environment, where discussions about
the issues relevant to the artists and thinkers can
be developed and productively held.
