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
.

MUSIC THEATRE

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, acoustic,
scenic and esthetic challenges.

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,
ironic, with a political flavor,
always maintaining formal complexity
while highly entertaining.

INTEGRATIONS

'Integrations' (UMS 'n JIP+)
is an artistic research project initiated by UMS 'n JIP
in collaboration with international ensembles
and composers who have been associated with the duo for several years.
'Integrations' presents and deploys the results of many years
musical practice and research in a new and larger
instrumental context, aiming to integrate both voice and recorder
into the contemporary ensemble's format.
