Ondřej Gášek (sound objects, live electronic)
The concert in Brno will feature samples of metal towers, bridges, sculptures and objects the author has encountered on his trips around the Czech Republic, Switzerland, and Ukraine. All these sounds come from the environment of deserted industrial estates. Another musical instrument will be the glass pipes from the former Vsacan Brewery in Vsetín. The author has extracted those parts that are in tune with each other. These acoustic sounds will also be combined with purely electronic samples. In this musical and sound performance the author will attempt to develop almost a stage adaptation of his sound composition, heading towards ambient and electronic music.
Ondřej was born in Vsetín in 1981. He has studied at a machinery training school in Vsetín, at Zlín Film School (where his major was sound), and at the Faculty of Fine Arts (Multimedia Studio) of Brno University Technology. He is currently studying multimedia composition at Janáček Academy of Performing Arts in Brno.
Since 2005 he has been working in Prague as a sound engineer for actors‘ films, documentaries, advertisements, and independent audiovisual production in the film and television industry. He has created sound and musical compositions for featurettes, videos, and theatre plays. He lives in Brno now.
In his work he has been oscillating among many electronic music genres. He has been influenced by ambient, trip-hop, industrial music, techno, noise, post punk and minimalist music. He plays both acoustic and electric guitars, the drums, bass, and piano. In his current works he pursues sound and musical compositions as well as electric-acoustic industrial music. He examines the acoustic nature of iron. His musical instruments are metal sculptures and objects, cylindrical metal objects, etc. He also uses sampling, digital sound modulation, granular synthesis, etc. For his performances he usually uses an interactive combination of music, sound and video.
