The stage of Komuna will occupy the apparatuses of two local electronic artists whose releases stand out in the region.
The poet and electronic musician Gašper Torkar will present his anticipated latest release after working for many theater performances and presenting the single Harlesquinesque. Supporting him will be 08080 (Jure Anžiček), a sound designer and a producer from Slovenia, active in various experimental music projects, who will present the music from his first release Astro Disco.
Gašper Torkar is a multi-faceted artist whose body of work, stretched between poetry, music and other artistic forms, has brought him to various literary, theater and club stages. At the 2016 Club Marathon, he proved himself an excellent architect of electronic soundscapes, as you were able to hear in his musical debut Dreams of Others.
Occupying a darker, more caustic, and even at times brutalist sonic world is the piercing, foreboding Dreams of Others EP. The snarling, roaring release comes from musician, poet, and artist Gašper Torkar. Dramatic sound design coalesces atop driving percussion patterns, as heard in “Impersonal Again.” A considered and delicately assembled release, Dreams of Others sees textures artfully soar into one another. – Ollie Zhang, Bandcamp
Jure Anžiček (08080) is a sound designer and a producer from Slovenia, active in various experimental music projects, who also performs solo. Using modular synths and relying on improvisation, he sculpts distorted, abrasive and harsh sonic soundscapes on the fringes of noise and techno. An explorer with a playful and inquisitive approach to loud electronic music.
