The ensemble has performed at the Roca Gallery in London, Matadero in Madrid; at the 2013 Lisbon Architectural Triennale, and the International Anthony Burgess Foundation where the ensemble holds a quarterly residence of self-produced concerts including guests such as the Mivos Quartet, the Noise Upstairs and Le Quan Ninh.
