The Sond’Ar-te Electric Ensemble is an innovative contemporary music ensemble in the European new music scene. Its core structure is the permanent combination of 5 to 7 acoustic instruments (flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano + viola + percussion + voice) with electronics relying on the Miso Studio’s technical expertise.

The Sond’Ar-te Electric Ensemble’s repertoire covers some of the most important works for ensemble up to 5 and 8 instruments of the 20th and 21st centuries. One of the key features of this project is the commission of new works, hence encouraging the strong and vibrant development of contemporary chamber music with electronics, with a special attention given to Portuguese creation.

The Sond’Ar-te Electric Ensemble composed by a young generation pool of exceptional musicians with individual careers as soloists, has gained since his premiere in September 2007 an outstanding artistic level and is already a reference in Portugal and abroad. In addition to its concert circulation around Portugal, Paris, Warsaw Autumn Festival, Bilbao Guggenheim Museum, City of London Festival, Seoul, Tokyo and Berlin, the Sond’Ar-te is strongly involved in media music theatre projects, in the development of educational  activities such as the Forum for Young Composers and nurturing new audiences by presenting special programmes for children.
