Sound Explicit 2016

Jakopič Gallery, Slovenska cesta 9, Ljubljana

Sound Explicit is a cycle of live experimental sound and audio 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.

Cene Resnik, photo by Nada ŽgankCene Resnik is a tenor saxophonist who lives and works in Ljubljana. In recent years he has been intensively focusing on and researching the field and the borders of contemporary improvised music. From 2010 he actively collaborates with various creative local and foreign musicians. He is one of the most visible representatives of the Slovenian free jazz improvised scene. As a saxophonist he researches the possibilities of the tenor saxophone without external props or tools, he is interested in the primary span and range of the instrument.


Daniele Dagaro, photo by Luca d'AgostinoDaniele D’Agaro Daniele D’Agaro has been committed to jazz and improvisation professionally since 1979. Hailing from the Friuli Venezia Guilia region, he first moved to Berlin, then Amsterdam, where he played, performed and recorded in the 1980s and 1990s. He led his own groups, among them also Sean Bergin’s MOB and Trio San Francisco with Tobias Delius and Sean Bergin, etc. In the 1990s he worked in the USA. He currently lives and works in Udine, Italy, and plays with the pianist Franco D’Andrea from Globe Unity Orchestra and with Aki Takase. With his projects he tours around the world.

D’Agaro and Resnik are improvising musicians. We know them already from the cast of Robert Jukič’s Operation Charlie. Both improvise with a large dose of inspiration and group play. Their playfulness is that which travels through the sound landscape of a tenor saxophone and a clarinet.
