Satellite Ensemble is the musical arm of the Satellite Collective, a multi-disciplinary arts organization based in New York City. For the past five years, Nick Jaina has been musical director and composer for a wide variety of pieces that have utilized the talented army of Satellite Ensemble musicians. The scores have ranged from modern classical ballet to minimalist contemporary dance. The instrumentation has focused on piano and strings, but has expanded recently to include samples of typewriters and laughing women, glockenspiels and drums. The music is lyrical without having words, the structures familiar to lovers of songs. It is music that is trying to push through boundaries but retain moments of beauty. It pulls on your coat sleeve and leads you through the modern art museum to point out the most touching painting in the whole building.

 

The ensemble has performed at BAM and Baryshnikov Arts Center. The New York Times has called the music, “pure, pungent, earthly and physically bracing.”

 

The ensemble has utilized many talented musicians, including Rebekah Durham (San Fermin), Amanda Lawrence (M Ward), Nathan Langston (The Telephone Game), Danah Olivetree (Angel Olson), and many others.
