The Red Ensemble, joined by guest musicians, combine varied approaches in experimental electronic composition and performance to present a multi-perspective sonic investigation into the intimacies, idiosyncrasies and potentiality of the performance space. Fuelling a performance which both engages with and transcends the listening space, this exploration into relationships between sound, space and performer is enriched through the collaboration process, resulting in a work which reflects the environment through multiple sonic and creative mirrors. 

The Red Ensemble was formed by three electronic musicians in order to explore a process of improvisation which evolves not through direct musical interaction between the performers, or between performers and a score, but through their engagement with and contribution to the sonic environments spontaneously created in their performances.


Presented as part of Pulse, Glasgow Music’s 2 year programme of electronic music funded by Creative Scotland.
