PHACE – Composition Commissions issued to Chaya Czernowin and Michael Jarell
PHACE – Verein music on line, Vienna, Austria
Ensemble PHACE – Verein music on line has been successful on the contemporary music scene for many years now and since the 2012/13 it has boasted its own concert cycle at Vienna’s concert hall Wiener Konzerthaus. The individual concerts each focalize different aspects, ranging from music for ensemble and electronics, film and music through to music theater projects. On a regular basis, many new works are premiered as part of these concert cycles. Collaboration with young and established composers and the stimulus of new works are at the core of PHACE’s work. PHACE regularly invites composers to cooperate with the ensemble long term and take part in residencies thereby making it possible to highlight new and older works throughout one season. Salons, public rehearsals, interviews and videos broaden the range here making it possible for a wider audience to be exposed to the composers, their work and their works in a relaxed setting. For the 2014/15 season the three composers Bernhard Lang, Chaya Czernowin and Michael Jarrel will be in residence at Phace. The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation is supporting the composition commissions issued to Czernowin and Jarrel.
