ULYSSES supports several emerging European ensembles, programming concerts where a new repertoire is promoted, thanks to commissions and reruns. The Schallfeld Ensemble is an international ensemble for contemporary music based in Graz. The group sparks the interest of its audience by its vivid virtuosity and refined chamber music sound, paired with interpretations that pay special attention to concert format, creating events that adapt to the specific venue while aiming for a new dimension of listening.

Schallfeld performs at ULYSSES associate partner open music on 23 July 2023. The concert is organised with the support of the Kunstuniversität Graz. La Chute d’Icare, a mixed ensemble piece composed by Brian Ferneyhough in 1988, will be featured in the program. Additional pieces, including works by Francesco Filidei and Francesca Verunelli, are still being discussed as part of the program. The event is in honor of Brian Ferneyhough’s 80th birthday and will feature composition tutors from the impuls Academy 2023. Check open music‘s website for more information.

In addition to performing at open music, members of the Schallfeld Ensemble join the impuls Academy as tutors, as has been the case since 2021. This is the case for the Special Program Performing augmented reality / Call for new solo Electronic Music, as well as Questions around Electroacoustic and Electronic Works. One-to-one meeting with composer, performer, electronic musician, sound director and Schallfeld member Davide Gagliardi. More information can be found here.
