Wet Ink Ensemble

Wet Ink Ensemble

The NYC-based Wet Ink Ensemble is proud to bring an evening of new music for septet to Constellation's Frequency Festival, featuring world premieres by Wet Ink members and Chicago residents Alex Mincek and Sam Pluta, two of the most adventurous voices in contemporary American music. These two new ambitious, large-scale works for septet and live electronics celebrate nearly 20 years of close collaboration within Wet Ink, tailored to the group's unique brand of ensemble virtuosity and sonic rigor. Wet Ink's core ensemble is a septet of world class composers, improvisers, and interpreters that collaborate in band-like fashion, writing, improvising, preparing, and touring pieces together over long stretches of time.
