Cheap Thrills Records

Aleksandra Kaca was born in 1991 in Radom. Composer and Italian language specialist. She is a graduate of the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw, where she studied composition with professor Marcin Blazewicz. She also completed a postgraduate course "Menedzer Artysty" ('The Artist's Manager'), carried out in cooperation with SGH Warsaw School of Economics. She is currently pursuing a degree in composition at the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, where she is working with Simon Steen-Andersen and Niels Ronsholdt. Kaca also holds a degree in Italian Language and Literature from the University of Warsaw, which she obtained whilst following a part-time course in cultural production, journalism and multimedia at the LUMSA University in Rome. She is a laureate of many national and international composer competitions, such as the first prize at the 56th Tadeusz Baird Competition for Young Composers (2015) and the Call for scores competition, organised by the American ensemble E4TT (2016). Her works were performed during the 59th and 60th editions of 'The Warsaw Autumn International Festival of Contemporary Music', at many different venues, such as the Krzysztof Penderecki European Centre for Music, the Pomeranian Philharmonic Hall, the Fryderyk Chopin University, The Masovia Institute of Culture, The Baltic Sea Cultural Centre, as well as the Music Academies in Cracow, Katowice, Poznan and Lódz. Aleksandra Kaca is an active participant in her country's music scene. She is a co-founder of a group called gen-.rate, which focuses on promoting works written by the young generation of composers. She also works with Delirium-Edition, co-organising important music events - e.g. The performance of Patterns in a Chromatic Field by Morton Feldman as part of the KODY Festival (2017), as well as Dark Matter(s): The Artist's way Mykietyn / Balka / Peszat / Kociuban at Teatr Wielki - Polish National Opera (2017). As a translator, she co-operates with the Fryderyk Chopin Institute, Cinema Italia Oggi Festival (Cinema Muranów / Cinecittà LUCE) and the directing duo Manetti Bros. In her composing work, Kaca focuses mostly upon colours and how to combine them in order to achieve a multidimensional, yet a coherent image. She often reaches for non-obvious orchestration, such as combining the harp with the piano (Smugi cienia) or the soprano and barithone saxophones with electronics (Argument snu). Aleksandra Kaca persists in exploring her interest in many different music genres. She is the leader and founder of the ensemble called FJORS (composition, voice, keyboard, electronics), specialising in alternative and electronic music, as well as trip-hop.
