Congruences Contrariées

INERT/E is a duo of Lars Akerlund and Kasper T. Toeplitz
Since " Congruences Contrariées" is the third release of INERT/E, the duo of Lars Akelund and Kasper T. Toeplitz. They present there is what is at the core of this project : long waves of electronic sound architecture - "Congruences Contrariées" the only composition on this CD, last for over one hour, one track of electronic waves, sometimes quiet sometimes more agressive, a balance between the beauty of noise and a static calm. This time INERT/E did not use any fancy synths or any instruments nor "real" sounds : all the music and all the sounds were created on computers ; a "pure" electronic music.

Kasper T. Toeplitz


Pogus is very delighted to release this new CD by Kasper T. Toeplitz: AMAS - which could be translated as accumulation, heap, pile, maybe cluster, like the verb "to amass".
AMAS is one lengthy composition consisting of long electronic parts; as described by Toeplitz, it is “a growing organism: my idea when working on it was to take some ideas from Don Buchla’s "philosophy" as a starting point - ideas from the "West-Coast" school of music: in building the "engines" which produce sounds, the shaping of the sounds is rather made by modulations and adding harmonics (kind of distortions) than the more "classical" (East-Coast) method of using filtering. But the Buchla/West-Coast influence is also on the structure of the music itself, the work considered as a living organism rather than a strict composition; or perhaps rather like a fixed time and a walk with a given direction, but all the steps are not fixed.

Kasper T. Toeplitz & Anna Zaradny

Stacja nigdy w Zyciu

Two pieces, seemingly appearing out of the void, culminate – and fade away. It's at "Station Never in Life" ("Stacja Nigdy w ?yciu" in Polish) where Kasper T. Toeplitz and Anna Zaradny meet for their first duo LP. The recording features Anna Zaradny on saxophone, playing the instrument in her unique way, Kasper T. Toeplitz on bass as well as both of them using computers. This is at the same time and old project and a brand new one, or perhaps one in perpetual becoming: the two artists have already played together in many occasions in the past, but this time what is played is a project of a long-term collaboration, a way to explore the passing of time, trying new forms each time, working on the architecture of the proposed music but also the one of the venue in which the sounds will exist: a perpetual reconstruction of a crushed architecture.

"Disséminés ici et là"

LE SON DU GRISLI : Enregistrés le 18 juin 2014 à Evreux, puis Disséminés çà et là, Kasper T. Toeplitz, Jean-Noël Cognard et Jac Berrocal. Ainsi la basse de Toeplitz, derrière le sifflement des cymbales. Ronflant, elle déroule la trame et le son même de la rencontre : boulevard sous néons sombres sur lequel Berrocal pourra s'exprimer librement – c'est parfois, par quelques câbles no wave, Don Cherry solidement attaché à un totem fiché de travers. En fin de première face, les musiciens grondent toujours, mais en insistant maintenant : noise'n'roll tranchant… Qui tranchera d'ailleurs avec la seconde face : sur un écho léger, le trompettiste y improvise du bout des lèvres quand Toeplitz nourrit quelques parasites et Cognard invente une adéquate ponctuation : c'est alors une danse contournée qui préside aux débats, chassée bientôt par un blues étouffé par d'autres grondements sourds. Et « c'est l'heure », déjà : celle de l'après-écoute, celle où le trio concrétise son vœu du jour : Toeplitz, Cognard et Berrocal, Disséminés, çà et là.

composed by FRANCISCO LOPEZ for electric bass and played by KASPER T. TOEPLITZ. 

Francisco López is internationally recognized as one of the major figures of the sound art and experimental music. For more than thirty years he has developed an astonishing sonic universe, absolutely personal and iconoclastic, based on a profound listening of the world. Destroying boundaries between industrial sounds and wilderness sound environments, shifting with passion from the limits of perception to the most dreadful abyss of sonic power, proposing a blind, profound and transcendental listening, freed from the imperatives of knowledge and open to sensory and spiritual expansion.

cover by Paul Collins


this is a home-made (all covers are different!) release of a concert KTT did with Paul Collins' trio P_Lab in Caen, on march 14, 2012. great, somewhat "drony" music, all improvised.

Even after re-reading that review, I have no real clue as to how it sounded, but apparently indeed I liked it. Paul Collins, who wrote that, played on and on with a band called Ultradig and Caandides, and in the last two years with Lukas, Adrian, and Bladine, making up the group P_Lab, who played on March 14 of this year with Kasper T. Toeplitz a concert, which also included texts by Emmanuel Zwenger, the Z in the listing. There is no mentioning of instruments on the cover of this release, but hearing this music, which they describe as 'minimal drone noise', I assume it's an all laptop affair, plus perhaps some out board electronics to further color the detail of the affair. Most of the times it's quite a loud affair of heavy drones which come close to the world of noise, but luckily it's never really loud. For me the first piece, at forty five minutes already quite a beast, would have been enough to get the drift, so the next one, another twenty-five minutes may seem superfluous. The writer only appears, it seems, in the final piece, which curiously then only takes one and half minute. Quite a decent release, nothing new under the sun, but executed with quite an amount of style and care, which works out long and well. (FdW)

PERDU (solo electric bass) 

I don't know when this music was recorded, why it was composed, what for, when... I know it is me playing and I know it is only my bass, I know there is no other sounds (as I never use pre-recorded sounds). I found this recording on a blank CDr, at home. nothing written on - what is this? Yes, it is me, for sure and it was obviously a composed piece - the structure is quite unusual. I did not touch, edited or mixed it in any way. And not being able to remember what it was, I called it "mystery bass"

"KERNEL #2 (second version)"

rosa_06, CD

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 diffrent interpretation - a much longer one (53 minutes) and with much more density to it.

Actually this CD and this composition define very much what KERNEL is allabout - live interpretation of written scores of electronic music. Comparing the 2 versions is something... - exacltly the same music, never the same !

rosa_04, CD

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 43 minutes long architechture of noises.

"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.

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
