(b. 1953) is a fine specimen of a self-taught improvising and jazz musician who gained most of his rich informal education and music knowledge through playing in various music idioms with other musicians abroad (Netherlands, Portugal, Spain). He's one of the few Slovene jazz musicians with long-time international music experience, constant touring and playing at the international festivals and numerous venues, particularly in Italy.
After his return to Slovenia in 1992 Kaučič has been the major protagonist of new jazz and improvised music. He's been playing and presenting his music projects on main stages from Ljubljana Jazz Festival, jazz Lent Festival, and Jazz Cerkno Festival to Druga Godba Festival and Sajeta Creative Camp. Among the musicians with whom he has performed are Gianluigi Trovesi, Peter Brotzmann, Steve Lacy, Antonio Marangolo, Alexander Balanescu, Paul McCandless, Trevor Watts, Louis Sclavis, and Marc Ribot.
His vivid solo percussion music, usage of various sound objects, toys, pans and gongs and overall sound sensibility is presented on a solo album Pav [Peacock] (Splasc-h Records, 2005). Among his numerous recordings as a band/project leader stands up his trilogy of CDs to mark his 30th anniversary of being active as working musician, including concert recordings made in 2009 with German saxophone legend Peter Brotzmann (Tolminski punt 2), with singer Saadet Turkoz (Doline) and his trio with J. Girotto (Slakoper). In 2011, he received the Prešeren Foundation Award for this concert and the subsequent trilogy of CDs as well as for the CD Biči.
has been involved in many projects which have combined music, poetry and dance.
