Four years ago they brought Transit to a fabulous close, and now the Berlin ensemble Mosaik is returning to play a fantastical opening concert. Ensemble Mosaik will start a dialogue with turntable artists (Moguillansky), mixing the instruments with samples and a variety of distortions into an inventive game of ‘who’s playing what sound now?’ with the audience (Scheuer). As a bonus, they’ll play the stunning Fleischby Transit regular Enno Poppe. To add even more pizzazz to the Berlin-Leuven exchange, they’ll crown this programme with a world premiere by Jasper Vanpaemel.

Enno Poppe

Enno Poppe was born on December 30, 1969, in Hemer, Germany. He studied conducting and composition at the Hochschule der Künste Berlin with Friedrich Goldmann and Gösta Neuwirth, among others. Additionally, he studied sound synthesis and algorithmic composition at the Technische Universität Berlin and at the ZKM Karlsruhe. As a conductor, Enno Poppe regularly performs with Klangforum Wien, Ensemble musikFabrik and Ensemble Resonanz. Since 1998 he also is the chief conductor of ensemble mosaik.

Jasper Vanpaemel

Already at an early age Jasper Vanpaemel (b. 1986) was influenced by a wide variety of musical genres. From 2004 to 2013 he studied piano & composition with Jan Michiels, Peter Swinnen & Franklin Gyselinck at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. In 2009 Jasper studied electronic music (sonology) at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague with Richard Barrett and Kees Tazelaar.

Jasper’s compositions include original works and arrangements, both solo and ensemble pieces, varying between traditional instrumentations and interdiscliplinary multimedia set-ups. As a performing musician Jasper is active in various fields. With Jasper Braet he explores new ways of dynamic and aesthetic expression and performance.

8 Little Indians was realised in cooperation with Jonas Cambien (melodica), Lien Tallon (costumes) en Tom Beets (audio source).

Benjamin Scheuer

Benjamin Scheuer lives and works in Hamburg as a freelance composer. His music is all about sensuality and humour. All his pieces contain theatrical elements and often evoke an atmosphere of darkly coloured playfulness. Even though he frequently works with samples, Scheuer doesn’t consider himself to be a composer of electronic music but rather he focuses on a world of live-electronics and the human performance. As a founding member of Musicians without Borders, he regularly travels to Ecuador volunteering as a music teacher.
