Sound Explicit 2015

Jakopič Gallery, Slovenska cesta 9, Ljubljana

Sound Explicit is a cycle of live sound and audio experimental performances presenting a diversity of genres: from sound research to various forms of improvisation and experimental sound processing. The cycle was first conceived in 2003, with the purpose of supporting a wider spectrum of creative composition and research in the field of audio-visual art, predominantly those non-popular forms which are rarely included in Slovenian programme offerings.

The Igor Matković & Bojan Krhlanko Duet

In recent years, Igor Matković (trumpet, keyboards) and Bojan Krhlanko (drums) have started playing as a duet, in which they intertwine different musical genres – from acoustic improvisation to electronic beats based on long repetitive segments. In their music we can recognise a mix of influences brought from their previous music projects. Matković lends atmospheric sounds which he developed within his groups; Krhlanko serves up, among other things, industrial rhythms, which he developed with others as a member of the group The Stroj. They enhance the sound of their instruments using telephones, computers and effects.

Violet Breath is a composition that brings an exciting electroacoustic sound experience. It was first performed in the frame of this year’s World Tuberculosis Day, which also inspired the content of the piece.
