Steve Kaspar  (LU)

Steve Kaspar (1952 Luxembourg) participated and studied at the “Nouveau Théâtre Musical” (“Musikhochschule” Cologne) under the direction of Mauricio Kagel and also discovered a very strong affinity for the electro-acoustic and electronic world. Between 1989 and 1996 he devoted his time to cycles of drawings and sound poetry. Since then he has favoured video, audio-visual installations and, above all sound compositions, performances and concerts which are somewhere between noise, raw art and subtle sound decor exploring the mysterious, enigmatic and contradictory domain of the fields of the “ineffeble”.

His work is presented and performed quite regularly in Luxembourg, Belgium and futher afield. He has notably collaborated with Japanese dancer Yuko Kominami (One’s Voices), dancer and choreographer Sylvia Camarda

(How Do They Know…), the music ensemble United Instruments of Lucilin (Isa – The Reply), the avantgarde “trumpet player” Herb Robertson (Sympathy…alive), visual artists Gast Bouschet/Nadine Hilbert and cellist Andre Mergenthaler (Cave of Light)…Actually works in duo with accordion player Nataša Grujović.
