BIOGRAPHY

The oenm (oesterreichisches ensemble für neue musik) has been around for 40 years and established itself as one of the leading ensembles for music of the 20th and 21st centuries. From its home base in Salzburg, it gathers top musicians from eleven countries. The line-up varies from anywhere between one and fifteen musicians. Recently, the ensemble has been exploring new paths under the artistic direction of cellist Peter Sigl. The oenm does not shy away from using traditional instruments from different countries, and, in addition to contemporary music, also includes early music and works from the classical and romantic periods in its repertoire. For the oenm, direct interaction with the audience is as important as is dismantling genre boundaries. It also pursues electronic music, musical theatre, installations, workshops, and experimental formats like the “jam sessions” they founded.
