Studio-Venezia, La Biennale di Venezia 1/3 August 2017




"I imagine an overall environment: an immersive installation that propels visitors to the world of the recording studio and that is inspred by the pioneering work of Kurt Schwitters, the Merzbau (1923-1937). Musicians from all backgrounds are invited to bring this studio/sculpture to life, as it becomes home to their creations during the seven months of the Biennale. The pavilion merges visual arts and music with a nod not only to Bauhaus and the experiments of Black Mountain College but also Doug Aitken's Station."
Xavier Velhain
Invited by Johann Merrich to participate in Xavier Veilhan's Studio Venezia, French pavilion during the 57th international exposition of Art, Biennal di Venezia. Memorable experience with Electronic Girls (Jonann Merrich, Karine Dumont, Aldo Aliprandi and Alessandra Trevisan).

BREATHING IN/BREATHING OUT: A Little Anthology of Piano Music




Sputnik, composition I wrote for Debora Richards and Nada Kolundžija for two pianos quarter-tone apart, was published this May by Vertical Jazz production house in Belgrade, as part of Nada Kolundžija's project A Little Anthology of Piano Music (1914–2014).
BREATHING IN/BREATHING OUT: is a series of three compact discs and an accompanying book initiated by acclaimed Serbian pianist Nada Kolundžija and edited by musicologist Ivana Miladinović Prica. The collection of 37 piano pieces written by 25 composers, which Nada Kolundžija recorded in Belgrade during the 2015 and 2016, covers one century of music history from 1914 to 2014. This is a kind of topography of various musical idioms which emerged and branched out starting from the early 20th-century avant-garde composers, until the present day and its more-or-less faithful “heirs” both in the West and the East. The variety of genre range from avant-garde and experimental music through minimalism and post-minimalism; from mysticism to jazz and film music; АrvoPärt, Louise Andriessen, Philip Glass, Scott Pender, Lola Perrin, David Lang, Toby Тwining, Jacob Ter Veldhuis, Galen H.

The Cause of Death at the 56. October Salon 2016, Belgrade







Short film The Cause of Death (2015) by Bojan Fajfrić is selected for the 56. October Salon "The Pleasure of Love". In collaboration with Bojan I created the experimental music score for this film.
The ‘Black Wave’ was a prolific phase in the Yugoslav cinema in the mid 60s and early 70s that introduced the failure of the protagonist as the means of critical examination of the society. With The Cause of Death Bojan has decided to take over the roles of 5 major BW characters and re-enact their culminating scenes.
Sound track achieves the effect of communication signal and evokes traveling back and forth through time by using the original film dialogues and songs. 56. October Salon, 23 September - 6 November 2016, Belgrade.

Composition sUn will receive new performance at the festival "Showroom of Contemporary Sound" (Izlog suvremenog zvuka) by Diego Espinosa in Zagreb. Showroom of Contemporary Sound is a festival focused on contemporary music, viz. contemporary sound, with a wider understanding of the term contemporary, thereby following the conception of Music Showroom, as designed by a poet and literary theorist Ante Stamać (the founder of the Music Showroom) and academician Nikša Gligo (longtime artistic leader). Showroom of Contemporary Sound is not limited in genre, not defined in style, nor is it directed to promoting a certain poetics. However, that does not mean it has no clear program guidelines and set goals. The new music festival of Music Showroom promotes and presents musical exploration, development of technology and creating new DIY instruments and software, it is open to young people and it gives space for experimenting, while not dividing musicians and composers to academically educated and those educated outside the institutions, but promotes a dialogue between them, mutual collaboration and exchange of knowledge and ideas. It is precisely the openness of the concept that enables the festival programme to change and redesign itself, following the contemporary music production and shifting its focus in the direction of new tendencies...

Short film The Cause of Death (2015) by Bojan Fajfrić will be presented at the Exhibition 1966 Constellations Gaur at the San Telmo museum, San Sebastian from 22 Jan-15 May 2016. In collaboration with Bojan I created the experimental music score for this film.

With The Cause of Death Bojan has decided to take over the roles of 5 major BW characters and re-enact their culminating scenes. As the protagonist of this story, he embodied two modes of existence, appropriating texts and actions from Yugoslav film history and inserting them into the settings and conditions of his life in the Netherlands.

Mad Filaments and Ungovernable Shoots, April 15th, New York







MATA goes full blast in an unforgettable evening that probes all that we understand to work together to create music. Norwegian composer Bjørn Erik Haugen’s Summon transforms images to sound and back to image, questioning if what we see is really what we intend it to be. Mirela Ivičević, in her Orgy of References, takes on the role of the composer, their resumes in particular, giving a new take on the litany of accolades that fill them. Meanwhile American Megan Grace Beugger’s Liaisons connects a dancer to a prepared piano via a pulley system – what is more important: the sound or the performance? Serbian composer Jasna Veličković tears apart the instrument, creating music instead with magnets in her sUn. Finally, Music for Lamps – the trio of Adam Basanta, Max Stein, and Julian Stein – puts forth a clean slate in which tens of table lamps outfitted with transducers create their own music. Sound designer Clare Gallagher.
Concert date: 15 April 2015, 8PM, The Kitchen, New York.
