The last year and a half seems like a constant loose connection. Sometimes we are allowed to meet, sometimes we are only allowed to connect virtually. Closeness and distance, the fundamental poles of human relationships, have become a matter of negotiation for society as a whole. Ensemble Recherche has also approached the matter as involuntarily as it has with curiosity and undertaken various explorations. How can artistic work continue to connect, create resonance, or even physically touch?
Under this premise, the Ensemblehaus becomes an exchange for contact between musicians and audience, sounds and bodies, art and people. In a hybrid, immersive music installation, visitors can decide for themselves how close they want to get to the sound. Spread across several rooms, one can experience the physical effect of sound, listen through acoustic magnifying glasses, and influence a piece of music by the sheer presence of one’s own body – an interactive journey in sound between ASMR, improvisation, physics, and intimate encounters (and of course: contact microphones). And since it is also possible to connect online, an internet platform transmits the analogous experiences first live – thereafter, permanently accessible – into virtual space.
