ABOUT THE ARTISTS
ensemble mise-en is an innovative and versatile New York-based contemporary music collective striving to bring challenging yet beautiful sounds to a wide range of listeners. The ensemble consists of over 15 talented musicians who are led by composer Moon Young HA. The ensemble endeavors to impart an experience simultaneously multi-cultural, intellectually stimulating, and aesthetically pleasing (“mee” in Korean means “beauty”, and “zahn” means “to decorate”). Last year, their diverse repertoire featured unique music rarely performed in NYC, including works by Charles Ives, Kaija Saariaho, and Claude Vivier, as well as premieres by many ambitious young composers. During the upcoming year, ensemble mise-en will present four season concerts in addition to collaborating on special projects, which include ten commissions and more than twenty US and NY premieres. These performances are supported by New York Foundation for the Arts, the Issue Project Room, Washington Square Contemporary Music Society, and Austrian Cultural Forum New York. ensemble mise-en has been performing at various exciting venues such as the Tank, the DiMenna Center, Tenri Cultural Institute, and the cell theatre, where the ensemble is a 2012-2013 artist-in-residence.
