An archive telling its own origin story

Project description

Ensemble Resonanz is among the most prolific progressive orchestras around the world. Residents of Hamburg's Elbphilharmonie, the ensemble operates at the vanguard of Neue Musik, experimental staging techniques and club culture. In close collaboration with the 18 musicians we developed a permanent digital home for Ensemble Resonanz.

resonanz.digital closely traces the ensemble's conceptual process, adding another public forum to its laboratory approach. Live video and audio, as well as immersive photo galleries follow rehersals and concerts, finally arriving at the platform's heart: a freely associating system of sources, references and thoughts, perpetually emerging from the musicians working material as it is developed. By documenting creative processes in non-linear manners, it closely trails Ensemble Resonanz as it constantly reinvents itself.

In total, resonanz.digital presents the mental universe of Ensemble Resonanz in an approachable, yet highly idiosyncratic way. It is complemented by a pragmatic information website and a facelift to the corporate design executed in Suisse Int'l.
