KUPPER, LEO - ELECTRONIC WORKS & VOICES 1961-1979 (2LP)


"Leo Kupper was born in Nidrum, Hautes Fagnes (Eastern Belgium) in 1935. He studied musicology at the Ličge Conservatory, then became the assistant of Henri Pousseur who, in 1958, had just founded the Apelac Studio in Brussels. Kupper started to work on his first pieces there, but he would finalize them only upon putting together his own studio in 1967: the Studio de Recherches et de Structurations Electroniques Auditives. That is where he would compose, to this day, over forty works, most of them on instruments of his own design. In the '70s and '80s, he built a series of Sound Domes, places where every sound, every phonem uttered by the listening audience was transformed by hundreds of loudspeakers of various sizes organized in a dome shape. This record highlights Leo Kupper's earliest unique compositions produced during the 1960's when he was ardently seeking out structures distinctly applicable to purely electronic sounds. Released in our Early Electronic serie." (label info)
