Vancouver Electronic Ensemble is an outlet for the development of creative music with an ensemble of experimental musicians active in our city.
The main objectives of VEE include the performance of and research on experimental electronic music (both historical and original works composed by the ensemble), which engage performers and audiences in aesthetic criticism through a wide range of activities.
We wish to fully embrace experimentation as a primary activity in order to establish creative practices that will construct models of new, possible musics.
VEE aims to be an instrument for exploring and experiencing an idea of knowledge, and for investigating perception and representing philosophical systems or models of nature without fixing any a priori definition. These activities are based on an interactive and process-oriented approach of musical praxis wherein style-elements are created continuously within functions of time and context.
