Stéphane Clor — “Rhizome”
Stéphane Clor lives and work in Strasbourg, France. He creates music with string instruments, objects and rudimentary electronic systems. He also explores the fields of sound art, cartography, photography, drawing and ecology. Stéphane Clor’s solo is a bad weed in constant metamorphosis which impregnates itself with the places which shelter it. He plays a piccolo cello altered by preparations and electronic elements, which makes it a polymorphous and versatile instrument. His soundscapes are composed of granular lines, vibratory incantations and saturated repetitions that the musician sculpts in imperceptible breaks, mapping the moment to reveal its multiplicity. He is particularly active in the French experimental and improvisational scene. Lately, he has been collaborating with Merve Salgar (tanbur) and Maria Laurent (pianet) as part of Mire, a newly formed trio of improvisational music. The concert at the KET is part of a solo tour during which he will travel and perform, in spring 2023, in Prague, Graz, Bratislava, Vienna, Zagreb, Novi Sad, Sofia, Thessaloniki, Athens, Tirana, with a final stop in Strasbourg.
His solos are transformed according to the spaces that host them.
