Online event – streaming of live concert
link to the event

After two months in isolation, Jata C is meeting again! Live, at the same place, ready to explore bioacoustics and sound ecologies. Members of the group employ auditory perception to unite environmental and social themes. In doing so, they use the recordings of the real state of the world as well as speculative projections. Jata C are: beepblip, OR poiesis, Boštjan Perovšek, Bojana Šaljić P. and Brane Zorman.

Soundcamp is a network of listening points at sunrise on International Dawn Chorus Day. It is the part of Acoustic Commons, an emerging network of live environmental streams which draw attention to the unique sounds of particular places across Europe and beyond. Cona (as one of the Acoustic Commons partners) prepared the part of the program for this year festival. It includes commissioned works, online sound performances and the talk about bats and COVID-19.

Petra Strahovnik – Ji Youn Kang / ZVO.ČI.TI DUO:

Tuesday, Feb 25. at 8.00 p.m.: Kino Šiška, Ljubljana
Wednesday, Feb 26, at 8.00 p.m.: Kulturni dom Ivan Cankar, Vrhnika

In third concert series ZVO.ČI.TI DUOPetra Strahovnik and Ji Youn Kang will prepeare composition Resonance.

One of the distinctive, unique characteristics of the human beings could be the voice – even between two people it’s never the same. Of course we are not the only beings with the voice, but objects surrounding us have their own voices and their resonance frequencies too. Can we discover them? Can we make them sing? Can we create a choir together? Petra and Ji, during the performance, create a scene where found objects are stimulated by means of audio feedback on a resonating glass panel, aided by a transducer and a microphone attached to it. The objects speak with their own voices, sing, dance, and shout together, and eventually construct an organic unity. The performers are controlling and conducting them, creating a unique ‘harmony.’

Tomaž Grom – Séamus O´Donnell / ZVO.ČI.TI DUO

Tuesday, Feb 11. 2020, at 20.00, Dvorana Komuna,Kino Šiška, Ljubljana

In second concert ZVO.ČI.TI DUO, Grom and O’Donnell will prepare a sonic collision, gradation and overflow of two interventions with an outcome that can’t be predicted. Actually, due to the potential possibilities of the derivatives, instruments and improvisational methods, it remains intentionally undefined.

ZVO.ČI.TI DUO: Irena Z. Tomažin – Alessandra Eramo

Wednesday, Jan 29. 2020 at 8.00pm Dvorana Komuna, Kino Šiška, Ljubljana
Thursday, Jan 30. 2020 at 8.00pm at Avtomatik Delovišče with PiNA, Koper

Two grand sound artists, vocal explorers, interpreters and improvisers in one place, on one stage, and in one concert event. Undoubtedly the right combination for the first concert of the 2020 ZVO.ČI.TI DUO cycle!

To hear the voice, breath, twitch, vibration, silence of the other and, with intense and subtle energy, respond, react to them and return them in a dialogue between absorption and reflection. In uncovering various vocal and verbal communicative syllabic patterns from the depths of their throats, Irena Z. Tomažin and Alessandra Eramo will fill our ear chambers for an hour.

Production: CONA, Co-production: Kino Šiška
