ensemble mosaik’s interest lies in the diversity as well as research into – and continued development of – contemporary music’s aesthetic concepts and forms of presentation. Particular emphasis is placed on collaboration with young, often unknown composers and on an egalitarian working method. Close exchange between all the protagonists involved in a concert project is a preferred strategy; by opening up the work processes, creativity is concentrated and intensified. Additional emphases in the ensemble’s artistic work lie in dealing with digital media in the fields of composition, interpretation and sound creation, as well as approaching performance practice in new ways – for example, by including scenic and visual elements in concert projects and testing new concert forms. The ensemble has been working with numerous composers for many years, thus making it possible to develop music over the long-term in a collective process. Multiple works have been written for ensemble mosaik. Over 150 world premieres are in its repertoire.
