Founded in 2009 in conjunction with the Matrix project, it was created as a soloists' ensemble for music with live electronics and is associated with the SWR Experimentalstudio in Freiburg i. Br. The Ensemble wishes to do justice to the special performance demands of this genre through studies and intensive rehearsals in order to prepare concerts and recordings in an exemplary fashion. Some of its members have worked for the SWR Experimentalstudio for a number of years, in some cases taking part in the creation of new works in the studio, as did Roberto Fabbriciani with Luigi Nono. Alongside regular performances with Matrix and at the ars nova concerts of the SWR, they have made guest appearances at festivals in Austria, Slovenia, Norway, and the Netherlands. The Ensemble's own CD series is currently in production at NEOS. Their recording of Luigi Nono's Risonanze erranti was awarded the German Music Critics' Prize. Their artistic director and principal conductor is Detlef Heusinger.
