A processual approach does not balk at crossing borders. Together with Vincent Pongracz, Klangforum Wien ventures out into the open, whetting its pioneering spirit. This transgressive impulse towards the non-established forms part of Klangforum Wien’s backbone.
The NYKY Ensemble performs the work “The Harvest” by Finnish composer Ville Raasakka and the work “Bird of Paradise” together with Klangforum Wien.
The concert from our cycle series PRO©ESSION takes place at two times: 6:00 p.m. + 8:30 p.m.

About the NYKY Ensemble
NYKY Ensemble is a contemporary music group at the Sibelius Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki. NYKY Ensemble is a forum for contemporary music projects and a window for students into contemporary music trends and techniques, such as for example extended playing techniques, live electronics, microtonality, minimalism or interdisciplinary collaborations. The instrumentation of the ensemble varies depending on the programme performed, and for each concert period the ensemble is coached by a visiting musician or ensemble specialized in contemporary music.
The co-operation of NYKY Ensemble with Klangforum Wien is part of the International Visitor Programme launched at the Sibelius Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki in 2019. It complements the regular bachelor’s and master’s studies offered by the Sibelius Academy by inviting artists who represent the highest talent level of their respective fields to come and teach in Finland. The distinguished visiting artists work alongside students and teachers at the Sibelius Academy mainly in periods of one year or two years at a time.
