Ensemble Evolution

Ensemble Evolution came together in September 2010 to create musical experiments while in residency at the Piteå Institution for Music and Media in Sweden. Their goal: to incorporate improvisation, new media, and music technology into their original concept of a 21st century percussion ensemble. Consisting of percussionists Maria Finkelmeier (MA), Jacob Remington (TX), and Charles Martin (Australia), the group takes elements of jazz and contemporary classical music to produce original multidisciplinary projects, compositions and recordings. In 2011 they created and directed the inaugural Piteå Percussion Repertoire Festival, attracting students and professionals from around the world. Soon thereafter, they toured Sweden with vocalist Anna K. Larson and mentor Anders Åstrand. Since then, they have presented concerts and masterclasses at venues and universities in Fairbanks (Alaska), Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra (Australia), Pori (Finland), Stockholm, Piteå, Västervik (Sweden), and Vilnius (Lithuania).
