Tomažin / Kutin / Grom / Schellander
Irena Z. Tomažin – voice
Samo Kutin – hurdy gurdy
Tomaž Grom – double bass
Matija Schellander – electronics
The featured quartet has sprung forth from the threads and bonds that were being woven between the Austrian and Slovenian improvised music scenes for over a decade. Double bass player Tomaž Grom, vocalist Irena Z. Tomažin, Samo Kutin on the hurdy gurdy and Matija Schellander on electronic devices have performed together multiple times in different combinations during various creative stages in their careers. Improvisation is always the encounter of different musical expressions, their clash, their conjunction. Woven into it are a searching, oppositions and misunderstandings, both on the individual and collective level. The brittle and disembodied nature of the collective organism is what at the same time makes for the tension that encircles the music and that the featured quartet grasps splendidly to produce a collective sound and noise whose dynamic range spans across electronic sounds and noise, the bodily nature of the voice, the acoustic sound of the double bass and an altered hurdy gurdy. Together they form a uniform and intensive textural body of sound that allows them to engage in a stretching of the potential of their individual instruments.
is a Slovenian-Italian trio creating a sonic blend of psychedelic improvised music: spanning from contemporary electroacoustic pieces to space-free-jazz a la Sun Ra. odbo opqo has been invited to present its music in renowned international festival and clubs for contemporary music such as Interpenetration Graz, Brda Jazz Festival, Vinyl Zagreb, Zavod Sploh Lubiana, Werkplats fuhr Improvisatie Muziek, Zurich, JazzMatec, among others.

Alberto Novello a.k.a. JesterN’s practice repurposes found or decontextualised analogue devices to investigate the connections between light and sound in the form of contemplative installations and performances. He repairs and modifies tools from our analogue past: oscilloscopes, early game
consoles, analogue video mixers, and lasers. He is attracted to their intrinsic limitations and strong ‘personalities’: fluid beam movement, vivid colors, infinite resolution, absence of frame rate, and line aesthetics. By using these forgotten devices, he exposes the public to the aesthetic differences between the ubiquitous digital projections and the vibrance of analogue beams, engaging them to reflect on the sociopolitical impact of technology in a retrospective on technologisation: what ‘old’ means, and what value the ‘new’ really adds.
His works have been presented at Centre Pompidou in Paris, Museo Reina Sofia Madrid, Amsterdam Dance Event, Venice Biennale, New York Computer Music Festival, Bozar Bruxelles, BOA Biennale Porto, Rewire Festival Den Haag, Glasgow Contemporary Art Center, Dom Moskow, Seoul International Music Festival, Rome University of Fine Arts, to mention a few.
