A Film by Lydia Efstathiadou (2012)
With the project ENSEMBLE 2012 the International Summer Course for New Music Darmstadt responded to the trend which sees specialized ensembles becoming an ever more important factor in many sectors of the new music scene. During the Darmstadt Summer Course 2012 19 contemporary music ensembles from 8 different countries met, rehearsed and exchanged ideas with other groups, musicians and composers. The project involved ensembles with many different artistic profiles, regional provenances, and organizational structures: some ensembles at the start of their careers; others having just attained international recognition; as well as experienced, well-established groups. 
In a special promotion scheme called "boost!" 6 ensemble start-ups - Dal Niente (US), dissonArt ensemble (GR), El Perro Andaluz (DE), MAM.manufaktur für aktuelle musik (DE), Mivos Quartet (US), Quasars Ensemble (SK) - were given the opportunity to work intensely over two weeks with a team of ensemble coaches.
