O Cluster Ensemble
Interdisciplinary art group Cluster ensemble emerged in 2009 around the key figure of Slovak musician Ivan Šiller. It all started with a Slovak premiere of Steve Reich’s Six Pianos, performed by Šiller and his students in a piano store in Bratislava, Slovakia. Since then, the loose grouping of guest artists surrounding artistic duo Šiller and Király regularly performs both in Slovakia and abroad. Their repertoire consists of interpretation of works of contemporary composers as well as great composers of 20th century, interdisciplinary art projects focused on breaking the boundaries of artistic interpretation and various educational projects. Besides performative projects they also develop their own musical instruments. Till today almost 50 great musicians, dancers, fine artists and other artists from Europe and USA collaborated with Cluster Ensemble. Their first album, Cluster ensemble plays Philip Glass, was released in June 2016 on Slovak label Hevhetia and on Orange Mountain Music in USA.
