KERNEL _____ "KERNEL#2 (second version)"

The fourth CD of KERNEL - with still the same musicians, Eryck Abecassis, KTToeplitz & Wilfried Wendling - is a re-creation of their first CD, KERNEL#2, two years later. Exactly the same score, but a differnet interpretation - a much longer one (53 minutes) and with much more density to it.

Actually this CD defines very much what KERNEL is about - live interpretation of written scores of electronic music. Comparing the 2 versions is something... !!

KERNEL is an ensemble of live electronic music. All of it is written down, on scores, and is interpreted by the musicians - all in real-time: no sound files, no samples, no sequencers. Analog equipement can be used, even if the core of each musician's set-up is the computer. Each of them has to write its own computer program, as this is considered being part of the interpretation of the written score.
The musicians are Eryck Abecassis, KTToeplitz & Wilfried Wendling

KERNEL#2, written by K.T.Toeplitz, is the first piece to be played by KERNEL.
The only used sources are noises, filtered, processed, perveted. A 40 minutes long architechture of noises.

LE DEPEUPLEUR is the electronic project of Zbigniew Karkowski and Kasper T Toeplitz. Both musicians use computers, and create electronic sounds - no samples, no "found" sounds - it's all "pure" electronic. Even if their names can (also) be found in the "noise" circles - they did collaborate with musicians such as Merzbow, Tetsuo Furudate, CCCC or Francisco Lopez, to name a few - they are both composers having done, and still doing fully written down pieces for orchestras, ensembles etc
If there have to be some reference to the work of LE DEPEUPLEUR, it only could be Xenakis

"ZKT" is a long, one-hour piece structured in two parts - its ending being an eternal resonance. Re-read Beckett.

CAPTURE is a piece which is as much music as choregraphy as video, and whose interpreters interpret this piece  in its globality (dance, music, images) and not by separating the different artistic fields . The final form is as much a concert than a dance piece or even a live video installation. All of it. Of course the CD version gives you only the music - a long ascension whose only sound generator is a white noise - carefully sculpted by numerous filters, all activated in real-time by the movements of the 3 dancers
