The seven singers see themselves as explorers and discoverers who are constantly searching for new forms of vocal expression in exchange with composers. One focus is the work with artists who virtuously exploit the possibilities of digital media, with a desire for networking, playing with genres, dissolving space, perspectives and functions. The ensemble’s projects are characterised by idiosyncratic interdisciplinary formats between music theatre, performance, installation and concert staging. With more than 30 premieres a year, the ensemble’s work is regarded worldwide as leading and unique in the field of contemporary vocal music. The ensemble’s partners are always top-class specialist ensembles and orchestras, international opera houses, the independent theatre scene, electronic studios and numerous organisers of festivals and concert series of new music all over the world.
Against this background, the Neue Vocalsolisten have formed the genre of vocal chamber music theater. The singers also regularly collaborate with artists from non-European musical cultures and genres. In VOICE AFFAIRS, the Neue Vocalsolisten initiate artistic border crossings in which contemporary music is infected by the diversity of Lebanon’s experimental music scenes.
In its new series »Magical Spaces«, the ensemble, together with three young web designers, explores future performance formats between analog and digital perception, exploring all the possibilities of digital media.
