CONTEMPORARYOLOGIES

Contemporaryologies consist of 'pools' of works
with or without electronics
that are combined in situ to tailor-made programs
according to the venue, situation and context
.

> #1 (WITH ELECTRONICS)
> #2 (PURE ACOUSTIC PIECES)



CLASSICS

Modern works that have become standards,
offering a clear and evident context to UMS 'n JIP's
work and repertoire.

> THREE VOICES (Feldman)
> SOLO (Stockhausen)
> DECEMBER 1952 (Brown)
> GENEALOGIES (Schwitters/Duchamp/Schnebel/Cage)

> JOHN CAGE TRILOGY I: LECTURE ON NOTHING (Cage/Aperghis/Kagel/Berio)
> JOHN CAGE TRILOGY II: VARIATIONS II (Cage)
> JOHN CAGE TRILOGY III: 55 MINUTEN (Cage - 45' for a Speaker)



MUSIC THEATRE

Contemporary music is no longer about full-frontal
chamber music performance. UMS ’n JIP started
scenic programs to explore new esthetics and
to expand knowhow about live audio electronics, live video,
both remote audio & video control systems,
computer programming, stage lights and staging.
Together with Wolfgang Beuschel and Simon Wunderlich,
as well as Pablo Maritano and Teresa Floriach
they form a long term working crew collaborating
to approach specific technical and esthetic challenges.
The knowledge obtained is put fully at service of
composers offered a commission.

NATIONAL MONOGRAPH PROGRAMS

UMS 'n JIP's monograph programs are long-term initiatives,
i.e. the conceptual work, rehearsals, performances and recordings
are intended to be tackled together with the composers,
giving maximum importance to the works.
As almost no original compositions previously existed for voice, recorder & electronics,
the repertoire had (and still has) to be built up.
After a number of performances, these works are removed
from their national context and put into a pure musical one -
these program series are named 'Contemporaryologies'.
Find above the list of the national monograph programs realized since 2007.

ELECTRONICA

UMS 'n JIP's typical sound,
their highly sensitive interpretation,
soft dynamics, extreme color variety
- today close to pop esthetics -
ironic, with a political flavor,
always maintaining formal complexity
while highly entertaining.

INTEGRATIONS

'Integrations' (UMS 'n JIP+) is an artistic research project by UMS 'n JIP
in collaboration with internationally established partner groups
and composers who have been associated with the duo
for several years and work closely with them.
'Integrations' provides an opportunity to present,
integrate and deploy the results of many years
musical practice and research in a new and larger
instrumental, esthetic and cultural connexion. It offers
a new kind of contemporary ensemble,
in that UMS 'n JIP's characteristic approach
is integrated both musically and compositionally
into the contemporary ensemble's format.
