“Collaborating with Ensemble Matters is an incredibly rewarding creative experience . . .
the final multi-disciplined performance is always richer and more multidimensional than the sum of its parts.”
– Ian McNaught Davis (Visual Art)

“The outcome was great considering the various obstructions we had last year due to the pandemic and change in venues, etc . . . refreshing to experience a different environment.”
– Haruka Hochin (Motion Graphics)

“Owen is a dedicated and driven composer who communicates inspiring ideas to his collaborators and audiences . . . while also trusting and welcoming [our] creative responses . . . – a gem of a project leader.”
– Company Concentric (Choreography/dance)

Romantic Remnants – Music. Dance. Motion Graphics. Visual Art is a multidisciplinary collaboration exploring what it means to be romantic today.
