The Box Is Empty is an up-and-coming, project-oriented ensemble dedicated to the energetic performance and recording of contemporary art music. Through tried and innovative avenues of performance, education and outreach, and artistic collaboration, The Box Is Empty seeks to engage new and seasoned audiences in the evolving ways we interact with and experience sound, art, and music.
Our name is based on a simple concept. Start with a project (i.e. a box), fill it with all of your spirit, energy, and creativity until the project comes to fruition. Then empty the box and start again. The Box Is Empty is a view of the process. All possibilities are open, creativity is unending. Surprise the box’s recipient with the gift of new experience. The Box Is Empty.
