Sibelius Academy’s NYKY Ensemble continues their interdisciplinary artistic cooperation with Liisa Pentti +Co dance group. 

The NYKY Ensemble, which consists of Sibelius Academy students, performs generative electroacoustic music in a project combining music and motion together with visiting performers and specialists. The detailed programme of the presentation will be specified later.

Liisa Pentti +Co is a dance group from Helsinki. Their key values are artistic integrity and personal voice. The artistic profile of the group established in 2000 is rooted in the landscape of dance, live art and contemporary theatre, and their work is characterised by experimentation and the search for new forms of expression. Liisa Pentti +Co and NYKY Ensemble have previously performed SPACEPARTICLES # 10 (2013) and The Sinking of the Titanic (2015) together.

NYKY Ensemble is a contemporary music group of Uniarts Helsinki’s Sibelius Academy, which serves as a forum for contemporary music projects and provides perspectives on the trends and techniques of our time, such as expanded playing techniques, live electronics, microtonality, minimalism or cross-disciplinary artistic cooperation. The composition of the ensemble depends on the pieces to be presented at any given time, and the visiting supervisor in each concert period is a musician or ensemble specialising in contemporary music.
