Avant-garde Composers Ensemble (ACE), Copy Rite
Is a piece by Hossein Hadisi, the director of ACE. The work investigates musical possibilities formed and inspired by the building through the fundamental compositional technique of variation. Avant-garde Composers Ensemble is a project that focuses on bringing contemporary avant-garde music out of the concert hall. By performing in galleries, art exhibitions and taking part in cultural events, ACE experiences collaborative dialogues between the performer, the audience and space. Members of ACE are composers and composition students from a variety of musical backgrounds. The diversity of instrumentation and members’ musical experience has allowed ACE to become an adventurous ensemble that explores means of interaction between music and different art forms through an improvisatory rhetoric.
