Ensemble x.y

Ensemble


Ensemble x.y is a London based group of performers, composers and curators specializing in new music and contemporary performance practice.

Dedicated to the creation and performance of new works in intersecting fields such as music, performance art, art activism, sound art, radio art and art/science, Ensemble x.y has commissioned and performed over 100 new works by UK and International composers since their founding in late 2014. Their most recent performances include appearances at the Waterloo Music festivals, City University, St John’s Smith Square and St Martin-in-the-Field.

Winner of the 2015 Nonclassical Battle of the Bands, Ensemble x.y were finalists of the Nachtklang Competition of the Musikfest Erzgebirge presented by and broadcast on Deutschlandradio Kultur. Since 2016 Ensemble x.y holds a residency at Kingston University, as well as having a fortnightly radio show, x.y FM, on Resonance Extra FM.

Ensemble x.y’s side project ‘x.y song’ promotes the creation and performance of contemporary art song. Made up of six singers (Christine Buras, Lotte Betts-Dean, Jess Dandy, Patrick Terry, Michael Mofidian, Malachy Frame and Will Blake) and a pianist (Joseph Havlat), the ensemble has performed at Burgh House, Craxton Studios and most recently, inside the Brunel Tunnel.
