The Wet Ink Ensemble is a unique collection of composers, performers and improvisers committed to making adventurous new music. With a 16-year history of outstanding programming and performance, Wet Ink has earned an international reputation as one of the most innovative and virtuosic ensembles working today.

Wet Ink most commonly performs as a septet comprised of a core group of composer-performers that collaborate in a band-like fashion, writing, preparing, and touring pieces together over long stretches of time. This approach has led to an incomparable body of work, marked by a keenly developed performance practice, played in concert with ferocity, commitment, and expressivity.

A consistent advocate for young musicians, Wet Ink has commissioned, premiered and recorded numerous works by emerging composers. The group has also collaborated with a wide range of highly-renowned artists including George Lewis, Evan Parker, Christian Wolff, and the AACM, and has introduced NYC audiences to major European figures including Peter Ablinger, Mathias Spahlinger, and Beat Furrer.
