Jacques Gaspard Biberkopf is a Berlin based artist.
Influenced both by early 20th century existencialist movements and Ryan Trecartin, Grime and Musique Concrete, works within the paradoxical relationship between CLUB music and art/concept music.
The tracks of Ecologies EP., released in Kuedo’s Knives label, are intended as a field trip into the represenations of nature that emerge from the digital-social media scape.
The tracks here float between cyberambience and slamming rhythmic constructions; distant trails of web-filtered grime, and beatless studies of net phenomenology.
He says of the project’s inception, that he was intrigued by an oddly “naive idea of nature that seemed strikingly prevalent in my social environment.. I was curious to know how these simulations of Nature work in digital media, how do we do experience these simulated materials”.
J.G. Biberkopf appears as part of an newly emergent wave of intensely thoughtful, rhythmically physical, net-aware young artists, such as v1984 and Sentinl.
Recently interested in digital materiality, club politics, anthropocene, and human voice, Biberkopf doesn’t miss a chance to provoke.
