The SLM Ensemble is a New York City based experimental music large ensemble created by co-artistic directors bassist/composer Mark Dresser and conductor/composer Sarah Weaver. The SLM Ensemble performs and records works for large ensemble, solo and chamber works, film/multimedia, and the telematic medium via the internet by Dresser, Weaver, and at times collaborating composers. The modular roster is composed of diverse pioneering musicians of our time. The name SLM is an acronym “Source Liminal Music” as well as a tri-consonantal root of words from several languages that mean “peace”.
