The Ensemble is an open format for experimenting and premiering new works, arrangements, and sounds. 

At its core it is a string quartet (violin, viola, cello, doublebass) accompanied by the augmented piano. Born from concerts at Podium Esslingen and recordings for #bebeethoven the ensemble has been joining Kaan Bulak since 2018 on stages such as Philharmonie Berlin, Beethovenfest Bonn, Schloss Elmau, Mozartfest Würzburg, ZKM Karlsruhe and Podium Festival Esslingen.

From a group of close musician friends each concert program is thought anew with evolving roles within the ensemble and guest artists. Musical approaches are agreed upon together, everyone can lead a rehearsal if they wish to. Instruments are just the visible surface, people involved in the ensemble are interested in what is behind them, the essence of music, a transcendental experience.
