Patrik Kako








    Patrik Kako (*1998)  studies composition at the Music Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague in the class of Luboš Mrkvička (Hanuš Bartoňa 2017-2019).. He studied at the Conservatory in Bratislava with Peter Martinček, later studied composition in the Vladimír Bokes class (2013-2017), and conducting with Juraj Jartim (2015-2017), with the Czech conductor Hynek Farkač at the Jaroslav Ježek Conservatory (2018-2020).

    His current compositional work is based on the pillars of analysis and various conversion of sound recording, the result of which serves as an inspirational cohesive material in various elements. This principle is not yet unequivocally clear as the result of the analysis is combined at different points in the traditional composition. (instrumentation, instrument combination, chord timing, etc.). The form-forming aspect is the simultaneous combination of several harmonic layers and their implementation over time. In his work, we listen to a summary of avant-garde information from the second half of the twentieth century, a post-Webern tradition, and also inspiration from spectral music. An integral part of his work is the use of advanced tooling techniques and their hierarchization in the compositional process.

In 2019 he founded the student ensemble, especially new music re: JOUISSANCE: ensemble. His works was performed at various Slovak and Czech festivals, at international seminars for composers, Composite Laboratory, at festivals such as Asynchrony, Composing, Music for Europe (Sofia), project SoundMe(HERA).  Recently, his music or audiovisual works was performed in Sweden, Brazil, Malaysia, ...

    As a conductor, he is active in various styles, in particular, as a conductor of chamber music with a focus on the interpretation of new music. He conducted the premiere of his compositions, but also the works of other composers. As a choirmaster, he worked in the Trinitarian Church in Bratislava. He has collaborated with ensembles such as the Ensemble Terrible, the Orchestra and Choir of the Bratislava Conservatory, the Chamber Orchestra of the Jaroslav Ježek Conservatory, the Prague Mixed Choir, ...
