Spaceinitiative, a co-creation in NYC by Soundinitiative and Qubit

Soundinitiative Ensemble and Qubit New Music present Spaceinitiative, a French-american artistic collaboration:

Qubit invites French ensemble Soundinitiative to collaborate on a weekend long festival of a new site-specific performances and installations on September 7-8, 2019 (from 4pm).

For Qubit's most ambitious project of the 2019-20 season, the collective has chosen to collaborate with French ensemble Soundinitiative. Taking the form of a festival over two days, the project comprises three open-duration performative installations, and four concentrated concert events.


About Soundinitiative :

Soundinitiative comprises eleven musicians from France, Australie, Italy, China and United States who have each forged their own careers, both in France and abroad, as solists and chamber musicians. Their mix backgrounds afford the group a rich collective musical insight encompassing myriad cultures, musical languages and experiences. Since his formation in Paris in 2011, the group's activity has centered around the interpretation of contemporary repertoire, close collaboration with established and emerging composers to create new pieces, and the development of musical events with a strong emphasis on scenography.

About Qubit :

Qubit is a contemporary music and performance art initiative founded in 2010 by Alec Hall and Bryan Jacobs. Its principal mission is to foster the development of emergent voices by working with young composers whose work has yet to reach wide audiences, and to explore and develop new and experimental technologies as they relate to performance practice, sonic aesthetics, and public engagement. Qubit plays a unique role in New York City’s artistic geography.
