Ne(x)tworks is a collaborative ensemble of musicians creating and interpreting work with a dynamic relationship between composition and improvisation. In performance and recordings, the group locates pathways into various types of notation systems and interfaces, striving for a meaningful dialogue with the past, present, and future of creative music. Members of the ensemble are all composing performers.


Ne(x)tworks has an extensive repertoire of original music composed by the members of the ensemble as well as music from the 20th and 21st centuries that explore aspects of text-based, graphic and non-traditional scoring in addition to more conventionally-notated contemporary music. Ne(x)tworks has been referred to as "new-music all-stars". 

“Each [member of Ne(x)tworks] is a skilled performer, an inventive composer and a capable improviser.” (Time Out NY)

“Through considerable artistry, industry, stamina and determination, the Ne(x)tworks players fashioned a performance for the ages.” (New York Times)

“Ne(x)tworks’ performance of [John Cage's landmark] Songbooks… vividly captured the defiant humor, anarchistic leanings, and meandering philosophical inquiries that drove Cage’s work… it is hard to imagine a more authentic rendition.” (NPR)
