Kasper T Toeplitz: Elemental II & Burning House

Published on April 15th, 2022

In the week from 25th to 28th April 2022, the guest of Cirkulacija 2 and Zavod Sploh (Sluhodvod) was French/ Polish composer and instrumentalist Kasper T Toeplitz.

His work spans decades and represents a direct bridge between the previous generation of extremely powerful and distinctive – but still under-present authors – such as Zbigniew Karkowski, Tetsuo Furudate, Dror Feiler, Eliane Radigue, Phill Niblock,… – and the idea of ”electronic mind” (“la pensée électronique” / all sounds are equal, all is permitted, no more noise/music nice/bad, etc) as applied to new music –  such as Zeitkratzer, Phoenix_Basel, Zinc & Copper…

He will appear twice in Ljubljana – in Cirkulacija 2 | Ajdovščina Underpass:

Kasper T Toeplitz performs Eliane Radigue Elemental II

In recent years, French composer Eliane Radigue (b. 1932) has become an iconic figure in avant-garde music – an international star. Eliane Radigue started with concrete music as early as the 1950s – and although she studied with Pierre Schaeffer and assisted Pierre Henry – she developed her own approaches in parallel. She had her first solo public performances at the end of the 1960s, when she finally became aesthetically independent from the aforementioned duo and in the 1970s she fully immersed herself in exclusively electronic music. In 2000, she composed her last electronic song, L’Ile Re-sonante, for which she received the Golden Nica Award at Ars Electronica Festival in 2006. In 2001, at the request of Kasper T Toeplitz she created her first instrumental work ELEMENTAL II (since then played all over the world). From 2004 she has been creating exclusively for acoustic instruments. She is 90 years old.

After the concert, there was a conversation led by Nina Dragičević.

Kasper T Toeplitz – Burning House

The composition entitled Burning House was envisioned by Kasper T Toeplitz at the suggestion of the current umbrella concept of Cirkulacija 2 – the state as an enlightenment idea of ​​a “machine to improve the world”. In Burning House perspective, the disintegration of this idea is quite clear – in favor of the suggestion of the more chaotic principle of self-organization / not-exactly-perfect synchronization. In this project Kasper T. Toeplitz is foremostly a composer – a composition can be a very broad designation for any structure/ system. In this case, he suggested a piece for a large number of speakers: a multi-channel spatial composition – sound installation with associated live performers.

Decentralized composition: for the walking visitor, the sound changes according to his / herposition. A song without a “center” – “scattered” across many “rooms”. A metaphor for “multitude” and the voices of different micro-communities? Can they sing in unison? This is probably not an issue, as the author is a supporter of extreme and saturated sound sculptures. Several local artists will take part in the preparation and final performance: Tatiana Kocmur, Marko Batista, Simon Macuh, Borut Savski and Stefan Doepner.

Event production: Cirkulacija 2

Direct consequence: the release of album Kasper Toeplitz – Burning House on bandcamp

Kasper T Toeplitz
born 1960, lives in Paris / France – is a composer, electric bassist and musician who develops his work in a no-man’s-land between academic composition (orchestras, ensembles, opera) and electronic “new music” and “noise” music. He started as a composer for classical instruments, then resolutely put the computer at the heart of his work – as a tool for reflection and composition – and as a living instrument that changes the sound of more traditional instruments – or just produces electronic noise.

He is the recipient of numerous awards and recognitions and the recipient of orders from the French government. Modern radio works, collaborations with electronic studios such as Ircam, GRM, GMEM, CRFMW, EMS, GRAME and Radio France. He has collaborated with many experimental and otherwise difficult to classify musicians and artists: Zbigniew Karkowski, Tetsuo Furudate, Dror Feiler, Art Zoyd, Eliane Radigue, Phill Niblock, Ulrich Krieger, Stevie Wishart, Z’ev, and others …

In 2015, he was in Slovenia as a participant in the Noise Festival in Trbovlje.
