‘The demands from users have often contradicted engineering possibilities. However, once the targets became clear, we, SHIBUYA, have made every effort to knuckle down to achieve them. The keyword is “NO COMPROMISE” believing that we can overcome the difficulties without sacrificing anything.’

Unce upon a time… somewhere between free jazz mountains, sea of death metal and islands of live electronics… there were SHIBUYA MOTORS! Free improvised electro-acoustic music project closely related to ATRAKT ART label (organizer of the NEXT festival of advanced music in Bratislava), established in 2007 by Slavo Krekovic and Miro Toth, who are also members of other experimental ensembles (Musica falsa et ficta, Voice Over Noise, Frutti di Mare, Q30J666222, Kapela snů, Uran Uran, DJ Hamborgarafabrikkan).

Long long ago, back when the world was young – that is, somethime the year 1958 – a lot of artists and composers and other people who wanted to do beautiful things began to look at world around them in a new way.

They said: “Hey! Coffee cups can be more beautiful than fancy sculptures. A kiss in a morning can be more dramatic than a drama by Mr. Fancypants. The sloshing of my foot in my wet boot sounds more beautiful than fancy organ music.”

Improvisation Symphonic Orchestra based in Bratislava (since 2006).

Conservative principles in music are often described as dead. But musically dead can also be the Describer, practically the one, that complains about the actual state of music. So who is really dead? The answer to this question will be given by histories in the future. We are actually too young to give answers to such questions, but our goal is to bring perhaps just a bit of light by our improvised music into the problem.

Musica falsa et ficta practices conducted collective improvisation. It is a group of about 25 young musicians, mostly studying at the State Conservatory and at the Academy of Music in Bratislava, plus guests. Each of these musicians brings his own personal view of music into the proces of improvisation. We try to combine music created by classical instruments with electronics (laptops, effects, …) and we move on the edge of composition, improvisation and interpretation in real time.

Members: Andrea Babjaková – violin, Peter Ferienčík – violin, Michaela – viola, Jonatán Pastirčák – cello, electronics, Pavol Kušík – double bass, Peter Duchnický – flute, Veronika Vitázková – flute, piccola, Martina Kuštarová – flute, Marek Piaček – conducting, Šimon Lupták – movement, Lucia Chuťková – clarinet, voice, Paulína Rónaiová – oboe, Tomáš Rak – bassoon, Alexander Platzner – alto saxophone, bass clarinet, Miro Tóth – alto saxophone, Juraj Miškovič – horn, Martin Krížik – horn, voice, Róbert Kolář – horn, Jozef Gorel – perkussions, Ján Oriško – drums, Lenka Novosedlíková – piano, xylophone, bells, František Király – piano, Janko Brtka – accordeon, Slávo Krekovič – el. guitar, synth, Oliver Rehák – el. guitar, rbnx – electronics

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.
