The Ever Present Orchestra (featuring Oren Ambarchi) performs Alvin Lucier at Constellation

The Ever Present Orchestra is dedicated to the presentation of the exceptional work of the American composer Alvin Lucier. The orchestra attempts to make Lucier’s beating-pattern-focused instrumental music approachable to a wide audience with its uncommon instrumentation of 4 electric guitars, 3 saxophones, 4 violins and piano. Along with classical musicians, the presence of prominent Lucier interpreters such as Stephen O’Malley from Sunn O))) and experimental guitarist Oren Ambarchi, allows for the ensemble to appeal to a wider audience than the conventional contemporary music scene. Alvin Lucier supports this initative. He has been involved in the naming of the orchestra, and is currently composing a new piece for it’s line-up working title Double Cross-Hatch.

The orchestra’s repertoire will thus consist of both this new piece, as well as adaptions of existing works, like Hanover (2015), Braid (2012), and Two Circles (2012). The orchestra is based in Berlin und Zurich.
