Based on the idea of abstracting the sound language of ambient, minimal music and pop into an orchestral format, Philipp Rumsch founded an ensemble under his direction in autumn 2015. He wanted to approach this music with a compositional-conceptual approach, but at the same time integrate the principle of improvisation. A total of twelve musicians representing the ensemble's core cast reflections in October and December 2016, under the direction of Nico Teichmann at the Echolux Studios Leipzig.
The ensemble members, who come from the classical and jazz scenes of Leipzig, Berlin, Dresden and Weimar, form an unusual line-up on reflections, thereby opening up new worlds of sound that combine seemingly contradictory associations. The flow of stylistic boundaries as well as composition and improvisation creates a music in which a dense atmosphere and high suggestive power stand alongside equal subtle intimacy and a concentration on structure.
