Electro-acoustic wizard Martin Klapper was on the scene already in the 90s when he participated in the legendary Company weeks organized by Derek Bailey. Among his many collaborations, the duo appears with Roger Turner as one of the most important - "Recourseful, these fellows - aren't they", as Bailey said about them with a typical British understatement. Born 1963 in Prague, Czech Republic, Klapper mostly works as a composer, musician and visual artist. Martin Klapper is a musician who gets on-stage without a single recognizable musical instrument. Instead, he improvises with as much as two full picnic tables covered with mechanical toys, toy instruments, everyday electronic gadgets, and a variety of homemade instruments. His ability to coax an incredible array of weird sounds out of these devices, combined with a seemingly always-in-control manner of interplay with his fellow musicians, made him an in-demand player on the improv scene since the mid-‘80s.
