The ZVO.ČI.TI so.und.ing DUO series is a multiannual music performative project connecting international and Slovene sound artists and performers through the research, presentation and mapping of new sound practices, structures and methods in the frame of residency programmes and in accordance with CONA strategies. ZVO.ČI.TI so.und.ing DUO constitutes a platform enabling improved conditions for continual international cooperation and exchange between artists, artist production and artist concert presentations of new sound works, while at the same time presenting Ljubljana as an important sound production and creative-networking crossroads.
The sound compositions by the invited Slovene and international artists will be created by way of collaboration in a studio in Ljubljana and by utilising long-distance collaboration tools. The premiere of all-new sound works as well as performances of individual compositions will focus on presenting a wide range of artistic sound practices and a range of possible researches and approaches to sound, composing, the meaning of collaboration, the exchange of ideas and playing with performative potentials. ZVO.ČI.TI so.und.ing DUO series aims at establishing relational conditions and increasing listening sensibility through the experiencing of space and the commons. To borrow a quote from Brandon Labelle,“Sound is not only material, but a means for staging performative events that generate relational narratives and the making of shared space.”
