Regime_S - Hans Peter Stubbe Teglbjærg

Wednesday, November 21st, Maison de la Culture - MC2:

Tools for physical modelling enable to produce fascinating sounds but also provide a new way of thinking composition. Student of Tristan Murail and Brian Ferneyhough, Hans Peter Stubbe Teglbjærg was deeply influenced by these composers ; he learned to "enter the sound" and compose it from the inside. The computer has become an essential tool to model a composition from "natural sound phenomena". After "Rhizome II" (2000) Hans Peter Stubbe Teglbjaerg begins a new collaboration with ACROE in order to propose "Regime_S", a work with a "phenomenological" approach, that deals with the timbre of sounds produced by physical modelling. The piece tries to "naturally" (i.e. physically) link the models, the flow and the musical structure in order to create dynamism, between stability and instability.


Hans Peter Stubbe Teglbjærg (b. 1963) was educated in instrumental and electronic composition by Ib Nørholm and Ivar Frounberg (Royal Danish Academy of Music Copenhagen), privatly by J.W. Morthenson (Stockholm), as well as in computer-composition at the "Institut voor Sonologie" (the Hague) and at IRCAM (Paris), where he was also employed as composer-in-research and teacher. He has a keen interest in the physical-acoustic nature of instruments and the phenomenology of natural sounds. "To penetrate the sound, to compose the timbre" constitutes his real motivation to use modern technology when composing. While demanding an in-depth knowledge of modern musictechnology, this approach has resulted in international expertise in computer aided composition, synthesis and spatialisation. He also likes to involve himself with perfomance, interaction and diffussion of electronic music, as well as to collaborate with other art forms. He has composed instrumental and vocal works, works for instruments and electronics, for tape, for the stage, as well as audiovisual installations and music for art videos. He has participated in a number of international development projects of computer tools for controlling sound synthesis (IRCAM/LIEU), and has taught at numerous courses on sound synthesis, computer aided composition and spatialisation. He teaches since 2001 at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Electro-Acoustics. His music has mainly been performed in Europe and is released on CD by DaCapo, Media Artes, Kontrapunkt. A CD release of his electro-acoutisc works is available from his homesite. In 1996 he recieved a 3 year stipendium from the art council of the state of Denmark. Since then he works primarily as a freelance composer.
