Uran Uran (Slavo Krekovic and Oliver Rehak) is the first music planet discovered. Despite long-tem observations, it used to be wrongly considered as a star. Uran Uran connects the past and present of music. Its atmosphere is composed of 73 % live improvisation, 25 % sampling, and 2 % traces of traditional genres and rock’n’roll. It was described as “music that leads to the onset of new, extraordinary dance forms.” The core of the planet consists of an intricate network of electronic sound elements, virtual electric guitars, and plunderhony technology.

Rentip – Digital Sound Processing
::.: – DSP, overtone flute , bells & stones, voices, harmonica

Poo is an audio platform established back in 1998 by ::.: and RENTIP. In 2005 we released the full length album “Fluorescent” on independent Prague-based label 11fingers records. From beginning to the present, we have also released few EPs, one remix EP, and many tracks as part of several compilations. Currently we are working on our second album.

Poo has played numerous live shows around Europe (Dutch Electronics Art Festival, Mego meets Wien Modern) and have participated in a few side projects and collaborations, as well as producing music for multi-media and art projects such as theater, film and sound installations.

Throughout the years our focus and interest has been in the exploration of all possible soundforms, and their effects on one’s perception and experience of reality.

“Poo emerged between harsh concrete habitats of Slovakian capital city – Bratislava. Formed by the musicians Rentip and ::.:. Poo’s unique sound is a combination of opposite principles given by its members: microsounds against organic and slowly developing surfaces, fine and subtle elements in opposition to ear-provoking frequencies, meditative atmosphere in a live act with fast moving noise.”
(Duch Electronic Art Festival)

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.

Two composers and performers with a lot of experience with composed and improvised music decided to use their laptops for creating music. The first performance of Pink Big Pig (PBP) was on the Next Festival in December 2005 in Bratislava.

The musical experience of both PBP members includes 15 years performing in many ensembles and groups – Ali Ibn Rachid, Vapori del Cuore, Požoň Sentimental, VENI ensemble, Dogma, don@u.com, SonDrian. They performed improvised music with musicians like Nick Collins, David Dramm, Hilary Jeffrey, Ann LaBerge, Beth Griffith, Jean-Marc Montera, Günter Müller, Chris Newmann, John Oswald, Otomo Yoshihide, Jon Rose, Elliot Sharp, Miki Skuta, Daan Vandevalle, Marián Varga, Alfred Zimmerlin, and others.

In the field of electroaccoustic music Pink Big Pig handles with the sound material in the same way as the ensemble Požoň Sentimental does with the different structures in the field of classical music (from artificial music events to banal pop elements…).

Ľubo Burgr plays violin, guitar, recycles and generates sound material on his laptop. Marek Piaček plays flute and piccolo and recycles his own flute playing in real time and uses different classical music events for accompaniment.

jamka


Monika Subrtova & Daniel Kordik

Jamka is an electronic music project set up by Monika Subrtova and Daniel Kordik, who first met as philosophy students in Slovakia. After playing in various hardcore and punk bands, Kordik had gradually become more interested in the idea of making musicwith electronic devices, and when Subrtova began to share his enthusiasm for synthetic sounds and misleading compositions, they decided to explore this territory together.
Jamka played their first gig in autumn 2001 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava. Using a sequencer and a sampler, they generated raw-sounding rhythms and structures. In the same year, together with RBNX and Urbanfailure, they released their first common CDr/tape, Urb Sound Systems, and founded the Slovakian Urbsounds Collective.
Jamka now reside in London, where they have established themselves as part of the local experimental scene. Using synthesizers, sequencers, samplers and various FX boxes, they touch on the darker side of techno, industrial and noise music, approaching it in their own uncompromising way. Their music is a whirlwind of colliding rhythms and fractured structures, punctuated throughout with hard-hitting sounds.

Aschenblond / Don Mirwald

CzechoSlovak experimental “noise positive” band Jack Jack present their own approach to a specific type of experimantal music called “no-input music”. Their music is created only with the use of mixing boards and cables and it shows the decadent beauty of the digital echo. Noise, drone, bangs and beats hidden in the machine show that this minimalistic approach results in unexpectedly rich sound scapes.

Jan Boleslav Kladivo (b. 1964) is an experimental music composer, videoartist, singer-songwriter and poet from Slovakia. After graduation at Technical University in Bratislava he had worked in the Experimental Studio of Slovak Radio.
Founding member of the OVER4Tea audiovosual project together with Martin Burlas and Daniel Matej (2004). Since 2006 he also collaborates with Julo Fujak in the project Fluff Modulation.

– founded his way of expression inspired by Zappa´s contrast of trivial pop music´s quotation and bizarre words, his baffling songs were broadcasted in independent Radio Ragtime in 1991-1992. They connected non-purposeful musical banality and unobtrusive existential poetry, which as Kladivo says: “will force you to stop dancing”;
– vintage sound engineer, have been working for several years in Experimental studio of Slovak Radio;
– since 2003 he is occupied intensively by creation of experimental computer, electro-acoustic music as well as by composing of written acoustic pieces in interaction with video art. Both sides of Kladivo (songs and “abstract” experimental music) are not in oppositions but in complementary relationships.

Juun, Martin Siewert, Bernhard Breuer, Peter Zagar, Daniel Matej, Marek Piaček, Ronald Šebesta


The idea of don@u.com was born in the fall 2002 when Daniel Matej and Martin Siewert met for the first time at Musikprotokoll ’02 in Graz, playing on the same evening and stage with their own bands TRAPIST and VAPORI del CUORE. Sharing similar aesthetic concepts and approaches to improvisation they decided to form an occasional band “open to musicians united by the river Danube and – most of all – by common ideas”. The band then got its name in 2004, at the occasion of its first public performance. Since 2006 don@u.com plays in more or less definite line-up with 7 musicians (Bernhard Breuer, Daniel Matej, Marek Piacek, Martin Siewert, Ronald Šebesta, Judith Unterpertinger, Peter Zagar) and the sound engineer Roman Lašciak. The first CD presents a selection of the band’s first two projects, “Lieder ohne Worte” and “Lieder ohne Worte 2”, created and premiered at the (NEW) MUSIC AT HOME ’04 in Šamorín and at the EVENINGS OF NEW MUSIC ’05 in Bratislava.
