Creative studio working on audiovisual unexpected experiences. Immersive installations light-sound & interactive works, researching and focusing on the balance between nature and technology, as main tools for the creation.
Founded in 2009 by Fabio di Salvo and Bernardo Vercelli, Quiet Ensemble generates audiovisual performances and installations by capturing the essence of various objects and creatures ranging from goldfish to pineapples to clouds. The research of Quiet Ensemble goes through the observation of balance between chaos and control, nature and technology creating subjects that merge those elements that take form from the relation between organic and artificial subjects, focusing on insignificant and wonderful elements like the movement of a fly or the sound of trees. Celebrating the “invisible concerts” around us every day, Quiet Ensemble strives to reveal hidden or often overlooked aspects of the environment around us.

Ali M. Demirel
Ali Mahmut Demirel, born in Turkey in 1972, is a Berlin-based artist. He studied nuclear engineering and architecture before pursuing art. Demirel started to make video and sound work in the early 90’s while he was a researcher at Middle East Technical University, Audio-Visual Systems Research Center. In the 2000’s, he focused his work on real-time computer-generated images and began to create interactive live audio-visual performances. He is known for his long-term collaboration with the electronic music producer Richie Hawtin aka Plastikman, particularly exploring abstract minimal imagery with synchronised sound. After this period, Demirel returned to video installation work and created a trilogy observing abandoned architectures. Those videos formed his solo show titled “ISLE” at Arter Istanbul in 2018. Recently he is working on a series that connects ecology, nature and myth, through an exploration of specific geographies where notable mythologies emerged.
Demirel will perform at the Arts for Future Festival with composer Anthony Linell.
