Rituals, premiere march 2024.

By making connections with the worlds of contemporary art and electronic music, NEuE wants to appeal to new generations of audiences. 

For Rituals, NEuE joins forces with artist Nick Verstand (MTV, Stedelijk Museum, SXSW, Björk). With Steve Reich’s Double Sextet and a new composition by Salvador Breed , the ensemble will create an immersive audiovisual experience. The hypnotic power of Steve Reich’s music is amplified by Verstand’s light installations and surround sound design by Salvador Breed, who worked with Arca, Max Cooper & Iris van Herpen.

The world renowned Indian classical percussionist BC Manjunath and NEuE joined forces in Pulse: Concerto for Indian Percussionist and Ensemble by composer Ned McGowan, premiered at the Gaudeamus Festival 2022. Manjunath is lauded for his virtuosity the world over and McGowan’s music bridges the world’s of Indian classical and Western contemporary music with ease.
