Ordinary Affects

Ordinary Affects is a group of musicians gathered to workshop, explore, commission and perform contemporary experimental music. While the group often focuses on the performance of written compositions, it also serves as a laboratory for improvisation and the compositions of its members. The collaborative nature of the mission ensures a group that is always in flux; instrumentation is open, always changing and dependent on the project, concert and current membership.

The group has commissioned works by Michael Pisaro and Antoine Beuger and performed works by Joseph Kudirka, Jurg Frey, Morgan Evans-Weiler, Magnus Granberg and others.

Upcoming collaborations include new works by Eva-Maria Houben, Laura Cetilia, J.P.A. Falzone, Ryoko Akama, and Sarah Hughes.
