ensemble mise-en promotes large-scale composition projects and intense performances of contemporary and new music in New York City. The fifteen-plus member ensemble has the breadth of a "chamber orchestra", but defies the associated hierarchies of power, developing collective long-term programming and performance goals that interrogate canonicity in the contemporary scene. As a collective, the multi-national personnel has coalesced around a real aesthetic agenda, crystalized in the name mise-en; "mee" in Korean, means "beauty", and "zahn", "to decorate", and the group unabashedly promotes "beautiful" artwork to increasingly diverse audiences of contemporary sounds.
