Zvokotok

A cycle of contemporary composed music

Zvokotok focuses on contemporary composed music. It is defined by the research of compositional procedures and often linked to music technology. It encourages and merges unique sound languages and performative innovativeness and moves contemporary compositions into new spatial and concert forms.
Zvokotok connects established institutional spaces of artistic activity with premises of the dynamic action of NGOs. It implements and maintains unburdened space of dialogue and overcome the artificial distinction between areas and venues of artistic activity.

The program in 2022 was conceived by Steven Loy.

The series entitled Chiaroscuro presents five concerts on the theme of light, both literally and metaphorically: light as a medium and mediator of story and emotion, light as knowledge, light as intuition, light as a literal and spiritual guide, light as optimism ...

The performers are members of the ensemble Neofonía (composed of local musicians with a passion for new music) and guest artist Małgorzata Walentynowicz, a pianist specializing in new music who lives / works in Gdańsk and Cologne.

The program was conceived by:
2019 - Primož Trdan
2020 - Mauricio Valdés San Emeterio
2021 - Luka T. Zagoričnik

V biologiji se izraz »evolucijska konvergenca« uporablja za opis identičnih lastnosti, razvitih
neodvisno pri različnih vrstah, celo tistih iz različnih obdobij. Hobotnica je na primer za ogledovanje
okolice razvila oko, ki je po zgradbi in funkciji izjemno podobno človeškemu – čeprav se ljudje nismo
razvili iz glavonožcev in ne oni iz nas. Prav tako si ne delimo skupnega prednika z organom vida.
Podobno lahko skladatelji različnih slogov in metod odkrijejo podobne rešitve. Spored koncerta
izpostavlja načine, na katere se lahko različne prvine glasbenega dela določenega skladatelja razvijejo
neodvisno in vendar se nepričakovano zbližajo z deli drugih skladateljev - včasih tudi
medgeneracijsko.

V sodelovanju s Cankarjevim domom.
