Ensemble Mujirushi

Based in Edmonton, Canada, the Avant-garde/alt classical multi-media collective, Ensemble Mujirushi, was founded to present new graphic, visual, conceptual, verbal, intuitive and open scores by the Canadian and international Avant-garde and Experimental composers. The group was conceived by the composer Piotr Grella-Mozejko. Their public performances, notably during the Edmonton International Film Festival (2006), Explorations Concert Series (2008) and New Music in New Places project (2009), usually held at the Stanley Milner Library Theatre, have become highly discussed and received many enthusiastic reviews and comments from the critics and audiences alike. The ensemble, which now involves artists from across the country, specialises in the performance of contemporary repertoire, which often do entirely away with musical notation, substituted for by abstract signs whose rôle is to inspire musicians to improvise and/or create. Because they were “nameless,” the group adopted the Japanese moniker Mujirushi (literally “no name”).

The seven members of the ensemble are all consummate performers. Singer and actress Helen Pridmore (Sackville) adds her interpretive skills to broaden the range of the group’s repertoire. Flautist Chenoa Anderson, saxophonist Allison Balcetis and electric violinist Jerry Ozipko constitute the core instrumental component of the Ensemble. Composer and educator Piotr Grella-Mozejko is in charge of applying computer technology to live performances, as is the distinguished Canadian composer, Ian Crutchley, who also performs on “found” instruments, while the video artist Christopher Payne (Ottawa) provides visual interpretations of the music.
