Sketch was formed in 2021, and has a focus on creating new works by its members. Since forming the ensemble has given many premieres of music composed by its members, along with new arrangements of Japanese animation and game music, innovative work with Marike van Dijk involving dynamic, animated music notation, and music focused on responses to and interpretations of specific natural environments. Sketch is directed by Robert Davidson, using insights from his 25 years as artistic director of the award-winning ensemble Topology.
