The Sond’Ar-te Electric Ensemble is an innovative project in the European contemporary music scene due to its core structure being the permanent combination of 5 acoustic instruments with electronics. Alongside the development and performance of new works, the Sond’Ar-te Electric Ensemble’s repertoire covers some of the most important works for ensemble of the 20th century. One of the key features of this project, is the commission of new works with the aim of extending the repertoire for this instrumentation, with special attention given to Portuguese composers. In addition the Sond'Ar-te Electric Ensemble promotes an international composition competition “Sond’Ar-te Electric Ensemble – chamber music with electronics”. In previous editions, jury members have been Jonathan Harvey, Philippe Leroux, Miguel Azguime and Pedro Amaral. The Sond'Ar-te Electric Ensemble has gained since his premiere in September 2007 an outstanding technical level already a reference in the domain of contemporary music in Portugal and abroad; with concerts in Paris, Warsaw Autumn Festival, Bilbao Guggenheim Museum, City of London Festival for instance. The Sond'Ar-te Electric Ensemble is a resident ensemble of Cascais Municipality since 2008. EXTERNAL LINK Sond'Ar-te Electric Ensemble
