Musica Sequenza Short Info

The groundbreaking baroque ensemble Musica Sequenza was founded in 2008 by its artistic director Burak Özdemir. The group received in the blink of an eye, international attention for their unique interpretations of baroque music. The Ensemble performs historical concerts on period instruments as well as innovative and passionate electro-baroque shows, where electronic and early music are brought in dialogue.

Musica Sequenza’s artistic vision; “Electro-Baroque” is highlighted in three specific productions; “Opera del Futuro”, “Transmute” and “Sampling Baroque”. The interdisciplinary team of “Opera del Futuro” brings an existing baroque opera score into focus and through decomposition a spontaneous and non-dogmatic version reinvents itself. The recomposition merges not only musical or scenic fragments, but also goes to the very core of the content and structure of the original work. Opera del Futuro unites voice, period instruments, live electronics, contemporary dance, and multi-media to create choreographic music theatre.

The series Transmute is a playground for subversion and anarchy. A crude idealism is brought to sound in a dystopian synthesized texture. The listener is placed in the midst of the disconcerting sound flow, witnessing what appears on the sonic surface. By virtuosic improvisation on period instruments, Musica Sequenza produces a radial aesthetic articulation that brings lyric content to the foreground at the expense of any pre-existing sound structures.

The third production, the aforementioned “Sampling Baroque” was premiered at the Handel Festival in Halle, June 2015. The ensemble is preparing currently for its first electro-baroque album “Sampling Baroque: Exposing Handel”. This marks at the same time the first electronic album for the classical Deutsche Harmonia Mundi label (Sony Classical).

Musica Sequenza performs in various chamber orchestrations from an intimate duo to a full-size baroque opera orchestra. Furthermore the ensemble accompanied star soloists and singers as Ricardo Villazon, Kenneth Weiss and Daniel Bubeck. Musica Sequenza works in close partnership with Berlin performance spaces Radialsystem V and Berghain. Guest performances took place in Club Sisyphos and Uckermark Music Weeks to name a few. Their albums were published by Deutsche Harmonia Mundi/Sony Classical; “Vivaldi: The New Four Seasons” [2012], “Bach: The Silent Cantata” [2013] and “Rameau à la Turque” [2014].
