Ensemble Pamplemousse:
Through the Magnifying Glass
a surreal exploration of miniature and limitless aural possibilities

Seven works bring into focus the seemingly limitless aural possibilities of wood, plastic,
and metal combining in the percieved symbiosis of ‘instruments’. Not just an indexing
of microscopic sound, these aural materials are presented as concise musical objects,
critically demystifying what is often accepted as ‘other’ sounds. By combining the
stability of formal strategy with minutely instable sound material, the music is elevated
beyond the rhetoric of mere instrumental syntax, realizing a wider, more substantial
dialogue.

New and recent works by Alex Sigman, George Lewis, Andrew Greenwald, Natacha Diels, Ivan Naranjo, and Rama Gottfried.

Performed by:
Natacha Diels, flute; Kiku Enomoto, violin; Jessie Marino, cello; David Broome, keys, Maria Stankova, voice; Andrew Greenwald, percussion

ABOUT ENSEMBLE PAMPLEMOUSSE:

“[Theirs is] a style and concept that bridges the gap between the earliest conscious sounds humans made together and the most up to the moment exploration of musical possibilities…the event horizon of each sound describ[es] a moment with infinite possibilities, including infinite duration.” (George Grella, THE BIG CITY)
Founded in 2002 by Natacha Diels and Rama Gottfried as a vehicle for musical exploration, Pamplemousse presents concerts of extraordinary focus and clarity. Comprised of virtuosic musicians trained in the classical, improvisational, and electronic realms, the group consistently delivers fresh, exhilarating new concepts in sound. The members’ eagerness for aural discovery has allowed for ample experimentation processes, where boundaries are non-existent, and from which a strong dialogue has emerged. Among the group’s vernacular resides formerly unfathomable sound landscapes formed by the acute relationships the performers have forged with each other, and as they alternate roles with the composers who are an intrinsic part of the ensemble.
The product, ceaselessly uncompromising and resolutely beautiful, is created by incredibly innovative, yet-to-be-named approaches to performance and composition.
