Ensemble Adapter has been internationally active since 2004. In addition to extensive concert tours and festival engagements it has produced numerous large scale projects in Berlin (see Portfolio). For several years the ensemble ran a regular concert series in Iceland (Frum-) and Finland (Seitsemän), and it continues to run the series 'Rotation' at its homebase in Berlin-Wedding. 'Open Mic' and 'Adoptions' are original workshop formats the ensemble has developed in Berlin. External educational work has been conducted in collaboration with major institutions worldwide (Harvard University, Stanford University, Universität der Künste Berlin and others).

Ensemble Adapter has appeared at major international festivals, such as Ultraschall (DE), MaerzMusik (DE), Wien Modern (OS), Darmstadt Summer Course (DE), Israel Festival (IR), Ultima (NO), Time of Music (FI), November Music (NL), Transit Festival (BE), Rainy Days (LU),  Reykjavík Arts Festival (IS), Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (GB), Borealis Festival (NO), Sydney Festival (AU), Disko Arts Festival (GL) and many others. Concert trips have led to Russia, Japan and the United States of America.

The ensemble's interest in collaboration with like-minded artists has led to interdisciplinary projects with visual artists Douglas Gordon (UK), Icelandic Love Corporation (IS) and Egill Saebjörnsson (IS), with author Finn-Ole Heinrich (DE) and electro-punk band Ghostigital (IS). Through the years the ensemble has developed close relationships with several composers, such as Sarah Nemtsov (DE), Paul Frick (DE), Davíð Brynjar Franzson (IS/US), Simon Løffler (DK), Jessie Marino (US/DE) and Celeste Oram (NZ/US). For larger musical formats Ensemble Adapter has teamed up with other musicians from around the globe: Ensemble Pamplemousse (US), International Contemporary Ensemble (US), Ensemble Dal Niente (US), Asasello Quartett (DE), Ensemble Offspring (AU), Distractfold (UK) and Ensemblekollektiv Berlin (DE).
