Gaspar Claus is a French cellist with purely musical academic background, who has developed a mastery of his instrument by working with musicians from different scenes: Alternative (Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner/the National, Jim O’Rourke, Matt Elliott/Third Eye Foundation, Casper Clausen/Efterklang, Serge Teyssot Gay/Noir Désir…), World Music (Pedro Soler, Ines Bacan…), Experimental (Ryuichi Sakamoto, Keiji Haino…) Modern Classical (Vacarme), Chanson Francaise (Barbara Carlotti, Flavien Berger…) and Electronic. He runs the label Festival Permanent, which reflects his encounters, stage collaborations and search for genre-defying compositions.
With InFiné, Gaspar first performed with his father, Pedro Soler, during the InFiné workshops in Poitiers in 2008. The label went on to release two albums by the duo ‘Barlande in 2011 and ‘Al Viento’ in 2016. He has also been credited on albums by Rone (Tohu Bohu, Creatures, Mirapolis…) and more recently Arandel (InBach 1&2).
Gaspar has also written several film scores and documentaries with Vincent Moon or Colin Solal. “Makala” by Emmanuel Gras won the critics’ award at the Cannes Film Festival. More recently, InFiné has released “Adrienne” on June 4th, 2021 – a four track EP for the short film series “Hobbies” broadcasted on the French network Canal+.
