‘If I compose, it is for the sole purpose of attempting to prove the theories that I elaborate.’
Simon Kaplan (b. 1993, Maisons-Laffitte) is a French composer whose music is characterized by its algorithmic nature and the frequent use of unconventional instruments. Attaching a specific importance to timbral research and sometimes resorting to the spatialization of sound sources, his quest for innovation in music led him to develop various compositional techniques, discover new musical principles and solve long-standing musicological problems.
He currently studies at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel in the class of Dr Peter Swinnen.
