Four Weddings but No Funeral on the Day of the Dead

1. 11. 2013, MMC KIBLA

This year’s edition of festival (DA)(NE)S music cycle focuses mainly on the artistic research by contemporary musicians, who are highly unconventional, notwithstanding that some of them have academic education – this year the stress lies on microtonal music and an alternative musical tuning on one side, and on less ordinary electronic artistic performances on the other.
Microtonal music highlights an aspect of music that is rarely exposed on Slovenian ground, since rhythm is usually the more comprehensive aspect in these parts. It focuses on a specific demonstration of music, which is created ‘in between individual piano keys’, i.e. microtonal music or music with alternative tuning. Sometimes this brings about literally new instrument creations, such that can serve better to the actualization of this musical principle. Selector of the microtonal music cycle program and the performances of various artists carried out throughout the year is Cameron Bobro.

“On stage, I have a body. It is there. Its presence is not a pretence nor representation for a spectacle. The sound guides my presence and not vice versa. The sound guides the movement. The sound is always the source. Even if it may provoke a vibration, a tremble, a dance. Images. Different readings. My presence is actualized through how my body participates to the sound. Beyond gesture.”
