After carefully reviewing over 160 submissions, we're pleased to announce the results of our 2018 Call for Scores: Kyong Mee Choi's "To Unformed" will be performed on our Performer Portrait concert on 4/6/18 at Tenri Cultural Institute (featuring Esther Noh and Geoff Burleson), and Igor Santos' "Lamento" and Gabriel Bolaños' "Sonorita" will be performed on our concert of Latin American composers (both NYC premieres) on 5/6/18 at Shapeshifter Lab. Congratulations composers! These were difficult decisions, and we were very impressed with all the submissions.
Ensemble Ipse is a contemporary music pierrot sextet based in NYC.
Ipse’s mission is to find common threads in works whose stylistic profiles appear, on the surface, as divergent.
The group presents recent music that transcends aesthetic categorization and strives to create a forum for composers on the edges of the mainstream of contemporary music.
To this end, Ipse commissions and performs pieces that fall outside the practical confines of traditional concert resources, including works of long duration, multidisciplinary projects, collaboratively composed pieces, and pieces with unusual or non-standard instrumentation.
