KASPER T. TOEPLITZ
Kasper T. Toeplitz is a French composer and musician of Polish origin, born in 1960. He lives in Paris.
He has worked with academic research organizations, such as GMEM, GRM, IRCAM, and Radio-France, as well as with experimental musicians, such as Éliane Radigue, Zbigniew Karkowski, Dror Feiler, Tetsuo Furudate, Phill Niblock and Art Zoyd . Citing Giacinto Scelsi and Iannis Xenakis as influences, his early work was mostly written for traditional instruments. He received several prizes and distinctions for these works: 1st prize in composition for orchestra at the festival of Besançon, 1st prize in the Opéra Autrement/Acanthes competition, Villa Médicis Hors-les-Murs in New York, prize Léonard de Vinci in San Francisco, Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto, and DAAD in Berlin. He has also written for his electric guitar orchestra, Sleaze Art. He then integrated computers into his work, via the programming language MAX.

JE DOUBLE F
JE double F (born Jeff Richie) is an American musician from South Jersey. His music has been described as punk inspired rap[1], with his lyrics being « a scathing condemnation of mainstream suburban America and all of its inherent hypocrisy.

LOUP BARROW
Loup Barrow spent his early childhood in London surrounded by a musical family circle.
Later, in France, his fascination for drumming began under the wing and the influence
of Marcus Camus from whom he learned for several years, before continuing to study under several other outstanding teachers, including:
Mustafa Tuita, Percussion, in Morocco
Guy Louiset, Steel Drums, in Martinique
Catherine Macé, Vocal Technique, in France
His quest for unusual & enigmatic sounds has leed him on a road of discovery towards instruments such as the Hammered Dulcimer, the Hang, the Din Pah, and the chromatic Mbira among others.
In Venise, he discovered the Seraphin (tuned wine glasses) and built one of his own when he came back to France (3½ octaves). As he learned to play the Séraphin, his curiosity continued to grow…
Then he was introduced to the Cristal Baschet, one of the last real acoustic instruments invented in the 20th Century) and met its inventor Bernard Baschet in Paris, as well as the maker of the instrument, Frederic Bousquet. He was enthralled with the range of possibilities that the Cristal offered.
His atypical experience has given Loup a focus and dexterity extending over a range of musical styles, while his warm yet guttural voice lends itself to the service of the rare sounds and atmospheres that he creates through his instruments. This virtuosity, though his bewitching compositions are what make Loup Barrow quite unique.
Both, a composer capable of writing for an ensemble, and a multi-instrumentalist having played various uncommon instruments (Cristal Baschet, Glass Harp, Hammered Dulcimmer, chromatic M Bira, Hang…), Loup Barrow writes music able to drift from an orchestral feeling to a minimalist hum.
In the past few years, Loup has collaborated with worldwide known artists such as :
Thomas Bloch, ondium Martenot, glass harmonica (Tom Waits, Radiohead, Gorillaz…)
Pauline Haas, harp (French classcial music awards 2012…)
Sebastien Leon Agneessens (The Conference of the Birds, Golden Horns…)
Manu Delago, hang, drums (Bjork…)
Nadishana Vladiswar, multi-instrumentalist (Hadouk Trio, Steve Shean)
Dominique A, french singer and composer (Winner French music awards 2013)
Serge Teyssot-Gay, guitarist (Noir Désir, Saul Williams…)
Olivier Melano, guitarist (Miossec…)

Thanks for reading.

I hope you will show some interest in one of these aretists.

All the best.

Alain
