KOMPASS

The "New" in new music - a broken sword

Founded in 2018, Kompass Ensemble approaches the curatorial problematics of new music of the 21st century not only from the tradition of commissioning, premiering and spreading the music of living composers, but more importantly from the questioning of the “new” as yet one more historical practice. Concepts such as authorship, originality and avant-garde will be the focus of attention in each project, seeking to find that what is new in music before we are even capable of recognizing it as new. In search of this gap, we develop projects and open spaces for collaboration with other soloists and ensembles like, a. o. Nexus Quartett, False Relationships Ensemble or percussionist Nanae Kubo.

Our project has been made possible thanks to the cooperation and support of institutions such as Mehrklang Freiburg e.V., Depot.K Kunstverein, the Institute for New Music and the Office for Gender Equality of the HfM Freiburg, as well as Freiburgs Culture office

 

CURRENT EVENTS

For 2021 we have planned online premiere projects (INSEKTEN), commissions to young composers and collaborations with ensembles such as Nexus Quartett and Duo Intakt as well as new members! Some surprises we hope to share throughout the year.
