Biography

Vladimír Hirsch is a Czech avantgarde composer, instrumentalist and sound experimenter, working with modern classical, industrial and dark ambient music. His compositional style is characterized by the usage of digital techniques to create an integrated musical conception where polymodal classical elements fuse within a dark experimental soundscape. Besides creating solo works, he is the founding member and leader of projects Skrol, Aghiatrias, Zygote (CZ), Luminar Ax and Tiria. He was a member (keyboard player and vocalist) of experimental post-punk group Der Marabu (1986-95). In his solo works, he also sometimes cooperates with occasional association of instrumentalists Czech Integrated Ensemble and vocalists Martina Sanollová, Dove Hermosa, Nadya Feir et al.

Biography :
Vladimír Hirsch has been composing since he was a teenager, when, as a pianist and organ player, he started to write romantic and classicist pieces with elements of experimental rock . However, he abandoned these compositions for some time and delved into experimental jazz and rock music up to 1986, when he joined experimental band Der Marabu. Simultaneously, he decided to focus on classical musical form as well, nevertheless with an attempt to enhance the action potential by modern means of expression and by searching for specific processes. He attempts to resume the tradition of 20th century Czech and all Slavic music , but eventually attains his own clear-cut position both in tone creative principles as in composition style and opinion on orchestration and the role of not quite musical components in it.
