Performer (ensemble)

Onix ensemble is a well known and acclaimed group of Mexican musicians dedicated to promote the best interpretations of Latin American contemporary music today. Mexican musician Alejandro Escuer founded Onix in 1996 under the honored principles of cultural diversity, high quality musical craftsmanship and artistic originality. Therefore ONIX offers and delivers a unique panorama of exclusive dedicated works, which are often influenced by literature, theatre, visual arts and new technologies. Furthermore, ONIX has worked on building bridges and new forms of expression by stimulating the creation of special pieces that combine classical music with other musics and aesthetic traditions. The idea is to promote original interpretations of works by composers interested in expanding and developing contemporary music idioms. The main strategy of the ensemble consists of national and international collaborations which translate into recordings, world premieres, commissions, residencies, tours and the launching of projects such as the Intercultural Onix International Music Compostion Competition. Onix has premiered more than 60 works dedicated to the ensemble and has toured extensively in Mexico, the United States, South America and Asia.
