ENSEMBLE MISE-EN is a New York-based contemporary music collective led by composer Moon Young HA. Comprised of talented young musicians, its personnel strive to bring a repertoire of challenging new sounds to diverse audiences. The ensemble strives for an experience that is simultaneously multi-cultural, intellectually stimulating, and aesthetically pleasing. As a collective, the multi-national personnel has coalesced around a real aesthetic agenda, crystallized in the name mise-en: “mee”, in Korean, means “beauty”, and “zahn”, “to decorate”, and the group unabashedly promotes “beautiful” artwork to increasingly diverse audiences of contemporary sounds.
