HYDRA ENSEMBLE is an electroacoustic quartet based in Rotterdam. The ensemble is a juncture of four distinctive expressions finding common ground. Together they form a four-headed entity that emerges from highly pensive collective improvisations, creating an intricate patchwork of concurrent melodic lines, textural explorations and expansive drones.
The quartet’s sonic language exists on the cracks of free improvisation, minimalism and experimental foreboding ambience. Hydra Ensemble’s sonic language is as ominous and majestic as the multi-headed Greek mythical animal they’re named after.
