Kristin Kuldkepp

Eesti Muusika- ja Teatriakadeemia, EAMT

Kristin Kuldkepp completed her Bachelor studies of classical double bass in Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre in 2016. She has played in various orchestras (such as Estonian National Orchestra, Animato Fundation Philarhmonic Orchestra, Tallinn Baroque Orchestra etc.) and ensambles, also performed as soloist. She has participated in different master classes of double bass, including Alberto Bocini, Nikita Naumov, Pedro Vares and contemporary music workshops (most important Camilla Hoitenga's workshop of performing the Kaija Saariaho's music). From 2015 she started to study viola da gamba with prof. Markus Kuikka. She has worked with Estonian young generation composers (Krõõt-Kärt Kaev, Ove-Kuth Kadak) to find different extended techniques for double bass and also tried to encourage them to increase the repertory of the instrument.

The enormous impact for her was the Alexander Technique course with Maret Mursa Tormis, where she discovered the importance of the free movement of the body for playing the double bass and for overall existing.

As the main interests for her have always been music from baroque and renaissance area with contemporary music and free improvisaton next to it, she has had hard times to choose which way to go. Finally, with applying to the CoPeCo master programme, the right decison has been made.

She tries to understand of how world of sounds and noises affects human-beings and how music could help them to get know more about themselves, their habitudes and subconscious reactions. She tries to manipulate with different sound-objects for reaching to the primal instincts of the human and finding the meaning for the phenomenon of existence.
