Ansamblis AIRBORNE EXTENDED radies 2013. gadā kā Ensemble Airborne paplašinājums. Tā nosaukums ietver norādi uz lidojumu un visai precīzi reprezentē grupas smalko, netveramo, gaistošo būtību. Ansambļa instrumentu arsenālā ir arfa, klavesīns, desmit blokflautas un četras flautas, kuru smalkais salikums rada ēterisku skaņas kvalitāti. Tas ir lielisks sākumpunkts jūtīgai un niansētai jaunu tonālo kombināciju meklēšanai – prom no tradicionālā priekšstata par šo instrumentu piederību senajai mūzikai, apliecinot, ka tie lieliski iederas arī laikmetīgās mūzikas interpretēšanā.
