ensemble mosaik

UP TO THREE is a festival format in which the musicians of ensemble mosaik present themselves in small formations: a maximum of three musicians including guests perform simultaneously on the stage of the Acker Stadt Palast in Berlin Mitte.


Over two days, the mini-festival will present studies and experiments from the workshops of the participating musicians and composers alongside selected compositions. Performer-composer teams focus on themes from current ensemble projects and explore new ideas and experiments in joint work phases over longer periods of time. This research work results in compositions and concepts that are presented and discussed in public.

With the festival theme NUMBERS SCALES SPECTRES we would like to open up a wide field for presentations and experiments: micro-total or spectral compositions, interweaving of traditional or specific scales, number-pieces, proportioned and counted, the golden ratio, randomly generated processes or programmed organisms, artificial intelligence.

For UP TO THREE - Zahlen Skalen Spektren, ensemble mosaik has selected recent compositions by Catherine Lamb, Alexander Moosbrugger, Jorge Sánchez-Chiong and Haukur Þór Harðarson. With the composers Zara Ali, Alireza Ostovar and Lucia Kilger, we would like to develop new projects that take up the festival theme. For current and planned ensemble compositions and productions by ensemble mosaik, we will experiment with the composers Jakob Diehl, Ricardo Eizirik, Hanan Hadzajlic and Jack Sheen. In addition, projects by ensemble members Sarah Saviet, Ernst Surberg, Mathis Mayr and improvisations are planned.

The singer and performer Nina Guo plans to comment on the two evenings as a radio presenter.
