Tea Hvala will together with Janja Hiti present the festival Deuje babe, which is since 2013 happening in Cerkno. The festival promotes “wild” artistic and socially engaged practices of girls and women to empower local community. The community is open for all, also for men, and by being potentially feminist is – through organizing and preparing the event, and even more through socializing and debates during the event – encouraging interpersonal relations and knowledge sharing between festival participants and general public in wider Cerkljansko area.

Red Min(e)d: Sound – (non)articulated spaces of social imagination, introduction

Svetlana Maraš: Where is my sound art?
participative performance and lecture

Participative performance of the piece Pendulum music (2010) is followed by the comparative analysis of this work and Pendulum music made in 1968 by Steve Reich. This introduces us to the works of conceptual artists and composers from the 1960s’s where we search for the origins of what we recognize today under the term “sound art”. Following the idea of early experimental music as an opposing force to traditional understanding of musicality at large, we are exposed to the examples from history that depict the increasing urge of introducing extra-musical elements in music, which was a driving force for the emergence of sound art.

Friday, May 8th

Svetlana Maraš: Sound performance

For years, she has been using sound as a tool for exploration of musical form, expression and meaning in the wider artistic context. She studied composition at Belgrade University of Art and Sound in New Media at Aalto University in Helsinki. Her works have been composed for and within various media. She is exploring the boundaries of musical being with realization of musical ideas through sound, text, physical object or digital technology. Her fascination with the relation of music and everyday object resulted in theoretical research Embodied composition: Treatment and meaning of physical object in experimental music and sound art that was a part of her graduate thesis at Media Lab, Helsinki.

The event is funded by Erste Foundation and WUS Austria.
