Following two projects in the context of the Ulysses Network - the IEMA composers’ workshop and the MANIFESTE Academy of IRCAM – the IEMA Ensemble presented some of their results within a concert at Konzerthaus Berlin on 2nd October 2012. Besides masterpieces by Helmut Lachenmann and György Ligeti, the audience listened to Franco Donatoni’s “HOT”, a virtuoso piece that had been prepared during the MANIFESTE Academy in Paris under the guidance of Thomas Adès and members of Ensemble Modern, to “nichtsdestotrotz”, a new piece by Birke Bertelsmeier.
