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

Srž

Ko razmišljamo o zvoku in njegovih žanrskih opredelitvah, pogosto pozabimo na fizični aspekt in lastnosti zvoka samega. Vedno znova se znajdemo v neskončnih razpravah o estetskih preferencah in kulturnem melosu, pravzaprav pa odpiramo vprašanja, ki se v svoji esenci dotikajo ravno tega, kar nas na nekakšen način vzpodbuja k hierarhiji opredelitev in njihovim kvalitativnim predstavam. Kaj se zgodi, če prisluhnemo zvoku in ne dovolimo, da bi hierarhija opredelitev determinirala naša občutja? Če dovolimo zvoku, da vpliva na nas s fizičnega vidika, se lahko ob tokratnem sodelovanju umetnikov na koncertnem prizorišču - prepustimo glasbi. Inštrumentalna operacija fizičnega fenomena v elektroakustičnem prostoru v sodelovanje združuje zasedbo umetnikov, akustični prostor in modus operandi.
