Almost all of Klaus Filip's art projects have been driven by technological possibilities and the social need to change structures. Among them subVoice (an underground tapemagazine), Sigis Bruder (early electronic songs together with singer Sigi Ecker), Christof Kurzmann's Orchester 33 1/3, Zentrifuge, music for short films, theatre, dance, sound-installations. He is the musical and electro-mechanic father of BigBaby, an outstanding intermedial project around a sculpture build by Red White and brought to life by the movements of Cynthia Schwertsik.
Filip is the inventor and never sleeping developer of the open-source software lloopp (http://lloopp.klingt.org), a musical instrument on the computer to provide open structures for live-improvisation, used by many well-known electronic musicians.
While he used to play on the edge of a computers abilities in the past years, he is now reducing the processes to mere sinus-waves, overlapping with themselves and the ever sounding surroundment of a place; searching for the individual limits of perception, in loudness and movement. Colaborations with Radu Malfatti, Werner Dafeldecker, Dieb13, Christof Kurzmann, Boris Hauf, Christian Fennesz, Jason Kahn, John Butcher, Sabine Marte, Gilles Aubry, noid, Cordula Bösze, Silvia Faessler, Taku Unami, Taku Sugimoto.
