About the project:

we are looking for the creation of a patchwork-composition of a series of micro pieces that can be rearranged at each presentation. In addition to seeking to generate new repertoire for our instrumental combination, we want to meet new voices and generate links for future projects with composers beyond our close networks.


Kompass Ensemble was founded in November 2018 by music students Swaantje Kaiser (violin), Elena Ralli (piano), Kang-Jung Sung (percussion) and Maximiliano Soto Mayorga (artistic direction)
