»KRAFTWERK_ KLAVIER / GENERATOR«
Thilo Schölpen - piano
Peter Issig - video projections
The evening of July 15 brings us a Kraftwerk concert and electronic-audiovisual performance.
GENERATOR - live audiovisual performance
The musician and video artist Peter Issig opens the evening with the première of his live audiovisual performance GENERATOR. GENERATOR is a digital enviroment in which electronic music and digitally generated video animation are arranged, live, though a human interface. Music and video are connected interactively, and mutually influence each other.
Thilo Schölpen plays his arrangement of the music of Kraftwerk, the pioneers of electronic music, on the piano. Between minimalist rigor and romantic soundscapes he creates piano miniatures that are reminiscent of Bela Bartok, Erik Satie and Steve Reich. The cool melodies and rhythms of the Kraftwerk’s music turn out to be the perfect material for interpretations that feel equally at home to an audience soaked in pop culture as well as one from a classical concert situation. Programmed synthesizer sequences turn into lively ostinato figures that offer scope for improvisation, and popular songs become timeless piano music. Along with the music, Schoelpen projects movie sequences he filmed during a recent concert visit to New York.
Thilo Schölpen studied piano at the Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, in Holland.
Apart from his piano concerts he produces and composes music and appears with other experimental musicians and conceptual artists in concerts and installations. His concert tours have taken him to London, Athens, Saragossa, Milan, New York.
