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 _____ "D.R."
This is the third CD of KERNEL - with still the same musicians - Eryck Abecassis, KTToeplitz & Wilfried Wendling
On this CD, two electronic compositions :
1/ DUST RECONSTRUCTION (KTToeplitz)
2/ DROWNING REPORT (E Abecassis)
KERNEL _____ "KERNEL#2"
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.
KERNEL#2, written by K.T.Toeplitz, is the first piece to be played by KERNEL.
LE DEPEUPLEUR _____ "ZKT"
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
"ZKT" is a long, one-hour piece structured in two parts - its ending being an eternal resonance. Re-read Beckett.
KASPER T. TOEPLITZ_____ "CAPTURE"
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
