The ensemble is comprised by a core of twelve musicians, which is widened or altered according to the needs of the artistic programmes performed. Its main artistic goal is the dissemination of contemporary music creation. The ensemble focuses on music written in the 20th & 21st century, seeking answers to questions concerning the names and the identity of this repertoire, the subtle silences, the unexpected influences, the deviations, the deletions and the ramifications of material which is still open and evolving.
