The Catchpenny Ensemble from The Hague is one of the Award Ensembles at the coming Gaudeamus Music Week. The fine thing about the Catchpenny Ensemble is that they operate as a platform, enabling them to enter into a continual dialogue with their surroundings. In addition, they use acoustic as well as electronic instruments and bring their music in contact with video art, film, and audio-visual elements. This is evident in their new concert Light Trace, in which various composers, audio-visual artists, and musicians explore the performance space. The result is a world where soundscapes playfully come together with light and video.
