Spaceship Ensemble

The Spaceship Ensemble has an antenna for unusual angles.

For this concert, the Hague ensemble has joined forces with two composers (nothing unusual so far). Carmen Jaci and Martin Keary both write new work at the intersection of acoustic and electronic music, a border area where the hybrid Spaceship Ensemble excels.

But here it comes: Martin Keary leads a double life as YouTube phenomenon Tantacrul, a new music influencer, some of whose videos have attracted millions of views. Conservatory students all over the world follow his channel. If anyone is able to open up contemporary music for young audiences, it’s him.

Experimental music is a niche? Says who? Carmen Jaci and Keary/Tantacrul make it clear how fruitful the intersection of composed music and adventurous pop can be. With an acoustic line-up of harp, piano, accordion, guitar/mandolin and percussion as well as a truckload of electronic instruments and synths, Spaceship is the ultimate vehicle to explore that terrain.

"For us, it's okay to be a little quirky."

The Spaceship Ensemble have a nose for unusual angles. For this concert, the Hague ensemble is working with two composers: Carmen Jaci and Martin Keary. Both will write new work which stands at the intersection of acoustic and electronic music, the very border area where the hybrid Spaceship Ensemble happens to excel.  

Martin Keary moonlights as YouTube phenomenon Tantacrul, a fresh-faced music influencer whose videos sometimes reach millions of views. Conservatory students all over the world follow his channel. If anyone attracts young audiences to contemporary music, it's Keary. Carmen Jaci and Keary/Tantacrul prove how fruitful the intersection of composed music and adventurous pop can be. With an acoustic line-up of harp, piano, accordion, guitar/mandolin and percussion and a whole grid of electronic instruments and synths, Spaceship is the ultimate vehicle to explore that exciting unmarked terrain.
