‘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 based upon mathematical models and algorithm-generated processes. Attaching a specific importance to timbral research and driven by the study of unexplored sonic environments, his quest for innovation led him to develop various compositional techniques, discover new musical principles, and solve long-standing musicological problems. Active in the design of harmonic systems for xenotonal scales, he is also regularly involved in interdisciplinary projects.
Simon Kaplan currently studies at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel in the class of Prof. Peter Swinnen.
