Šalter Ensemble

Šalter Ensemble operates on the border between free improvisation and composition, focusing on collective processes as a central part of its practice. The ensemble consists of outstanding personalities from the Swiss music scene, the Slovenian music scene and, in this year’s edition, exposed representatives of the Styrian music scene. The musicians come from a wide range of backgrounds – from jazz to traditional and folk music to contemporary improvised and electronic music – and are from different generations.

The 2024 tour marks the release of the album Tri dela, published on 3 May 2024 by Editions Bruit & Sploh.

In its current programme, Šalter presents three compositions:
Interstices / Interferences (2023) by Jonas Kocher & Gaudenz Badrutt
šum III (2023) by Elisabeth Harnik
My Wish Your Command (2023) by Tomaž Grom
