Karkowski : Remix
Saturday, November 17th.
An evening in memory of the musician-composer Zbigniew Kakowski, who died in 2013. Several musicians, French and Polish composers propose works related to his music.
Coming from a classical-contemporary formation, he studied with Iannis Xenakis, he quickly moved towards music known as “Noise” and the more extreme forms related to the electronic music. He uses the laptop as a sound production tool. A moment of sharing for lovers of loud, intense composed and subtle noise.
Robert Piotrowicz has authored radio dramas, sound installations, and music for film and theatre productions both for electronics and acoustic instruments. As an instrumentalist, Piotrowicz works mainly with his own live performance setup, developed around the electric guitar and analogue modular synthesiser. PIotrowicz has released several solo albums as well as collaborations with artists such as Burkhard Stangl, Anna Zaradny, Jérôme Noetinger, C. Spencer Yeh and Kevin Drumm. Other collaborators in recent years included John Tilbury, Ensemble Phoenix, Valerio
Tricoli, Oren Ambarchi, Martin Klapper, Zbigniew Karkowski, Lasse Marhaug, Kasper Toeplitz, Tony Buck.
