PHACE | CONTEMPORARY MUSIC

General Information

Year of Foundation:  2010

 

PHACE | CONTEMPORARY MUSIC (former ensemble on_line) has been an active member of the contemporary music scene for many years and is one of the most innovative and versatile Austrian ensembles for contemporary music.
Besides the focus on classic contemporary chamber music, the artistic spectrum includes productions of music theatre as well as multidisciplinary projects with dance, theatre, performance, electronics, video, djs, turntablists, installation art and many more.

 

The ensemble has commissioned and premiered more than 140 compositions so far. In 2010, the series PHACE x was launched, dealing with staged "musical theatrical" spaces in which the borders between contemporary music, performance, electronics, sound- and video(installations) blur. The ensemble (currently 11 active members) is regularly extended by musicians and guests from different fields of art.

 

Since the 1990s, the ensemble has had appearances at the most famous concert halls and prestigious festivals in Austria and abroad, among them Wien Modern, Klangspuren Schwaz Tirol, Salzburg Festival, Generator, Wiener Konzerthaus, Transart Bozen, Berliner Festspiele, Ultraschall Berlin, Salihara Festival Indonesien, SONEMUS Festival, Bludenzer Tage zeitgemäßer Musik.
Since the 2012-13 season, PHACE has produced its own concert cycle at the Wiener Konzerthaus.
Beginning in 2015, the ensemble releases recordings under a label of the same name, PHACE.
