Stefan Prins

Performing contemporary and free improvised music (prepared piano, objects & live-electronics) and composing are the main directions in Stefan Prins’s musical evolution. The motor behind this is a constant questioning of existing mechanisms, structures and ways-of-thinking. His goal is to search for contemporary relations between composer, score, performer, technology, audience and society through the medium of music. Stefan Prins started to play the piano when he was seven. After graduating at the Music School, he began studying engineering. Graduated as an engineering-physicist in 2002, he took up further musical studies and studied piano and composition at the Royal Flemish Conservatory in Antwerp and “Music Technology” at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. For a specialisation at the Sonology-department of the Royal Conservatory of The Hague (2004-2005), he received a scholarship from the Flemish Government. His interest in contemporary technology (such as computer-driven sound processing and algorithmic composition), its possibilities and impossibilities in musical contexts has been growing since then and his compositions and improvisations often include the use of contemporary technology. He received several commissions from the Flemish Government, has been played by (a.o.) Champ d’Action, Ictus Ensemble, Nadar Ensemble, Prometheus Ensemble, the Ensor String Quartet, Jean-Guihen Queyras, Matthias Koole, Frederik Croene and has collaborated closely with a.o. Serge Verstockt, Richard Barrett, Karlheinz Essl & Mark Applebaum. He performs as an improviser in Belgium and abroad, with a.o. collectief reFLEXible, which he co-founded, his duo with Horacio Curti, and duo’s with Richard Barrett & Peter Jacquemyn using (prepared) piano, amplified objects and live-electronics, in projects with dance, video, film, plastic arts and performance. He was awarded several prices for his compositions (a.o. KBC Aquarius Price for Young Composers 2001; Week of Contemporary Music Composition Award (2nd) 2006, Music@venture competition) and has been selected by ISCM Flanders for the World Music Days in 2007, 2008 and 2009. His compositions have been played at festivals such as Musica Electronica Nova, Ars Musica, Transit Festival, Novembermusic, Week of the Contemporary Music and Music(at)venture.
