Who we are

The Oxford Art Ensemble (OAE) is a collective of musicians, writers, digital sound artists and visual artists/film makers, who immerse their audiences in multi-disciplinary performances, exploring how we can come together in order to address the overwhelming complexity of the interconnected crises of our time. The OAE core group of multi-instrumentalist musicians invite local writers and performing artists to co-create unique performances, using different approaches to group improvisation and making improvised performance accessible to all audiences. We take our inspiration from the Art Ensemble of Chicago, a collective of multi-instrumentalists, who pioneered musical improvisation in the 70’s and challenged the political and cultural paradigm of their time.
