Residentuu:r is a creative residency series initiated by Ensemble U: in 2016.
In the season 2016/2017 Estonian composer Liisa Hirsch (https://soundcloud.com/liisa-hirsch) was invited as composer-lecturer to Residentuu:r. During the 6 open workshops Liisa Hirsch introduced to the ensemble and the audience different themes and important composers that are in one or other way related to experimental ways of creating and thinking about music (James Tenney, Alvin Lucier, Peter Ablinger, Marc Sabat, Wandelweiser etc).
In 2017/2018 U: continues with the series and starting from January we are very happy to welcome Andrus Kallastu (www.kallastu.ee) as a composer and lecturer in Residentuu:r.
The public workshops take place once in a month in Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre
