ACM Ensemble is a young and dynamic contemporary music group committed to performing some of the most iconic yet rarely performed works by international composers from the last few decades.


Founded by composers Mauricio Pauly and Sam Salem, Distractfold presents innovative new music by early-career composers alongside current works by established composers. Our carefully curated programmes include instrumental and mixed works alongside acousmatic pieces diffused via multiple speakers. The group’s home base is in Manchester but its members live across the UK and Europe.
