ensemble 0 – Eklekto
ensemble 0 [ˌɒ̃nˈsɒ̃mbl̩ ˈzɪəɹəʊ] Noun.
A contemporary music ensemble, directed by Stéphane Garin and Sylvain Chauveau, performing pieces by, mostly, contemporary composers including its own members, and working with numerous collaborators. First, its own compositions are specifically performed by the pulsating heart of the collective, i.e. a trio made of Chauveau, Garin and Joël Merah. Then, with a contemporary repertoire, it expands according to the needs of each work. ensemble 0 occasionally performs pieces by Moondog, Julius Eastman or Ligeti but is particularly keen on living composers such as Tristan Perich, Michael Pisaro or Rachel Grimes.

Eklekto is a contemporary percussion collective founded in 1974 in Geneva. Constantly seeking to reinvent percussion music, the group collaborates with living composers and contemporary artists through concerts, multimedia projects and artistic events that question the listener’s expectations towards new musical forms. Eklekto has premiered over 100 new works and performed hundreds of internationally acclaimed shows.
