Editors’ Choice

The musical cosmopolitans of Ensemble ɛkstʁaktə explore the musical potential of traditions both familiar and foreign to them. The transcultural ensemble concerts under the title Sonic Borderlines strive for an international and decolonised historical performance practice. The radically curated evenings bring together musicians from diverse backgrounds, such as Arabic and Azerbaijani classical music and music from the European Middle Ages and Renaissance. This part is curated by Jeremy Woodruff from the Berlin School of Sound.

Ensemble Extrakte – the Berlin-based Ensemble Extrakte was founded in 2013 to respond to this need with an ensemble that seeks precisely these roots for new forms of musical expression – an all-star ensemble of renowned musicians, most of whom live in Berlin, whose diverse musical origins include living traditions from China, Europe, India, Korea, Bulgaria, Syria, Australia or the USA, but also genres such as jazz, folk, techno, blues, but also Eurological concert music from the Baroque to the present. In changing constellations, in carefully curated concert projects and in joint artistic research, Ensemble Extrakte works across all geographical, historical, ethnic, social and ideological classifications of the world in search of a new music for our global future. The ensemble tirelessly searches for the unclouded path!

In the concerts of Ensemble Extrakte, forms of music-making, ideas and musical concepts from different origins intertwine and open up new approaches to music as an art form that productively combines different traditions. Each member of the ensemble is challenged to question everything within his or her own tradition: his or her relationship to pitches, scales, rhythms, but also to the audience, to his or her idea of beauty in music and to communication with fellow musicians.
In doing so, Ensemble Extrakte freely chooses the means that best suit its artistic needs – be it a learned set of rules for structured improvisation or an interactive score on the screen, be it conventional notation, verbal instructions, graphic scores, flow charts, computer-generated sounds, light signals or head nods.
