REANIMATION ORCHESTRA is an international open-structured multidisciplinary group of musicians united by their desire to blur the boundaries between the roles of composer, interpreter and improviser.
We present our work through a diverse range of sonic resources, encompassing string, woodwind and brass instruments, as well as live and pre-recorded electronics.
The Orchestra was founded in 2017 by Ame Zek and is currently formed of eight Berlin-based musicians: Ame Zek (prepared guitar, electronics, prepared thunder sheet), JD Zazie (turntables, CDj), Ingólfur Vilhjálmsson (bass and contrabass clarinets), Marie Takahashi (viola), Jack Adler-McKean (tuba, other brass instruments), Caroline Cecilia Tallone (prepared hurdy gurdy), Guilherme Rodrigues (violoncello) and Elo Masing (violin).
In previous seasons, members have included Ulrike Brand (violoncello), Adam Goodwin (double bass), Hui-Chun Lin (violoncello), Erik Drescher (flute), Sylvia Hinz (recorders) and Jeremy Woodruff (flutes), with whom we continue to work regularly.
As a diverse group of musicians as well as thinkers, the Orchestra aims to form part of larger a communication platform as a catalyst for new generations who are ready to join progressive movements evolving every moment around the world in the arts, as well as in social, environmental, cultural and political spheres.
Our performances are documented by Rauschpartikel, many of which you can find linked to at the Media tab above.
