History and process: Sound-scapes > sound-architectures.

Having experimented, since the '70s, with a large variety of materials in a number of disciplines, Steve Kaspar participates in a training course in new musical theatre with Mauricio Kagel in Cologne. Incited by these experiences, he dedicates himself to audio-visual and theatrical performances and reflections, collaborating with the "Stalker" in Brussels. Since the early '90's, Kaspar's research has condensed into cycles of drawing sound compositions, which all underline the general theme of 'Generation'. He explores the noisy, violent and contradictory domain of the fields of the "ineffable," in order to attain a form of precipitate of time and space; an astounding shape resembling a comet's tail and as crystalline as a metaphor.". The foundation and point of departure for Kaspar's artistic practice are the very sounds he experiences in his daily environment. Recorded / collected via tape-recorder and / or video-camera, they are archived and subsequently electronically propelled to their very borderline - transient 'elements', which at any given point in time might raise a new discussion with the material or lead to yet another transposition. Focusing on the resonance of these 'elements', their matrix, their principal structure/grid, their topologlcal use and their analogue treatment, Kaspar aims to encounter the original in a sound, to capture the essence, to give expression to its spiritual phenomenon. The subsequent manipulation and composition of these 'elements' results in multi-layered sphere sounds. For Kaspar, sound is an experiential / empirical reality. His 'Sound-scapes' / sound-architectures are based on his notion that sound IS an experiential / empirical reality and therefore should be experienced not only mentally but also physically.
