Formed in 2014, Abstruckt are one of the most exciting new percussion ensembles to come out of the UK. With a focus on theatrical performance, this ensemble reworks its repertoire to fit the space, creating an immersive experience for the audience.
As well as performing core works, such as Reich’s Mallet Quartet, Cage’s Living Room Music and Xenakis’ Okho, Abstruckt are passionate about pioneering new repertoire for percussion, and have premiered seven new works in the last year alone. Highlights of the ensemble’s performances in the UK have included the award-winning Multi-Story, BBC Radio 3 Open Ear, numerous Nonclassical events and composer collaborations with Listenpony & the 840 Series.
