The KEMUS Ensemble was founded in 1980 at the Department of Music of Stellenbosch University. The first chairman was Edward Aitchison, who held this position until his retirement in 2002. Theo Herbst’s association with KEMUS dates to 1994. The improvement of the technological infrastructure at the University of Stellenbosch Music Department, combined with Herbst’s own involvement in the Music Technology programme and KEMUS, have resulted in a lively contemporary music life at the Stellenbosch Conservatory.
