Kasper Toeplitz and Myriam Gourfink : Breathing Monster
at 8:30 pm
Polish-French composer and electric bass player Kasper Toeplitz has developed a body of work in the no-man’s-land between “academic,” electronic composition and sheer noise. Known for collaborating with such unclassifiable musicians as Zbigniew Karkowski, Dror Feiler, Art Zoyd, Éliane Radigue, Phill Niblock and Ulrich Krieger, Toeplitz makes use of the computer both as a real instrument and as a tool for reflecting on music differently, transforming the musical parameters of pitch data and temporality. Now he teams with dancer and choreographer Myriam Gourfink to create an evening of abstracted, hypnotic movement and sound. Performing live, Toeplitz hybridizes his electronic theorbed bass and explores the frontiers between pitch, noise, oscillations and stillness while Gourfink uses meticulous internal visualizations to manifest an evolving, interconnected series of micro-movements. Kasper Toeplitz will also perform Elaine Radigue’s Elemental II (2001), her first work for an instrument, written for Kasper Toeplitz at his urging. It became an instant "drone classic", in which the sounds are more felt than heard.
