POW Ensemble, founded in 2001 by Dutch composer/ saxophonist Luc Houtkamp, is a chamber ensemble of the 21st century, using live electronics and computers as musical instruments. The ensemble is internationally reknown for its approach to present electronic music to the audience in a comprehensive way.
A concert by POW Ensemble is no freak show: here, real music is being made!
For every project, a specific group of musicians is selected, varying from tapdancer, harpsichord player, electric guitarist, cellist, to ‘ud player, blues singer, DJ, and of course computer and electronics players.
