The ULYSSES network supports several emerging European ensembles, programming concerts where a new repertoire is promoted, thanks to commissions and reruns. NEKO3 is a Copenhagen-based contemporary music ensemble that pushes the boundaries of music, art, and performance through their innovative approach to sound, visuals and technology. With pianist Fei Nie, and percussionists Lorenzo Colombo and Kalle Hakosalo, the ensemble creates a unique experience for the audience by commissioning and premiering new works that incorporate elements of electronic and acoustic music, visual art and installations.

On 28 June 2024, NEKO3 performs “Angel Death Traps”, a song cycle by Alexander Schubert situated around the trans-human condition, in which a fusion between the body and technology is progressing further and further. These songs are progresses of intertwining of the digital and the human. The expression of the performers becomes increasingly artificial and technically stylized while addressing strongly personal, emotional and sexual desires. It’s a transition process, a melting of flesh and motherboard. The artificial and nature are constantly contrasted and interwoven with each other.
