Discovering a Shared, Contemporary Language
Trickster Orchestra performs in varying lineups and sizes. Among its collective are superb musicians and vocalists from genres such as electronic and new music, global classical music traditions, jazz, weird pop, and free improvisation. The ensemble does not simply paste these together, but strives to discover a shared, contemporary musical language.
Based in the conviction that present-day culture is post-exotic, Trickster Orchestra envisions new music that transcends genres and cultures. Traditions and skills rather become tools for improvisation that triggers musical innovation. Thereby, the orchestra opens up completely new sonic experiences for both musicians and audiences in its concerts and its collaborations with contemporary dance and poetry.
