lowii is the Latin name for carnivorous plant and also for orchid. These plants grow profusely on the island of Borneo.
lowii is also the new audio-visual project from Jonatán Pastirčák aka Pjoni, painter Katarína Sido, and programmer Igor Rjabinin who technologically transforms live painting into light projections of coordinates and constellation. It is live animation that proceeds from the transmission of a painting into midi signal that thus also influence the concert audio component. It is based on both ambient and hustle electronics and both modified as well as classic sounds of violoncello.

The contrast is important topic here. lowii connects melancholic and nostalgic sound areas with echoes of hard beats and elements of sound destruction. One of the main characteristics here is the use of image and sound as mutually influencing components.

Alongside a wide range of notable side-projects Pjoni’s solo path has proved to be one of his most satisfying. These electroacoustic country crossings know no boundries and bind to no particular (sub) genre; Though Pjoni’s music is ‘experimental’ he is completely at home crafting these complex landscapes.

Cello compositions grapple with the tangle of drone-ambient spaces which transfer the sound into the territory of minimalism, dirty electronics, and even into the dark corners of alternative hip-hop and bass music. As if the aforementioned genres have always flirted with each other.

Frutti di mare was an experimental audiovisual group which utilized different concepts of playing from 2007 to 2012. Production of this group dealt with interaction between text, voice, instrumental part and real-time visual projection. Visuals and live performance of the musicians formed an interactive experience. Every edition of the FDM project follows different phenomenon. Combinations of musicians also changed from one FDM project to another. Performers from FDM are members of contemporary improvised music scene – mainly from Slovakia, but later also from other Central European countries.

The author of FDM concept and artistic leader was composer and improviser Miro Tóth.
