SONICA FESTIVAL: Shackleton, Spatial, Domen Gnezda


The legend of bass culture Shackleton is returning to Ljubljana with the premiere of his new album ‘Departing Like Rivers’! London-based multimedia artist and musician Spatial will perform a minimalist premiere of the audiovisual performance ‘Pareidolia’, and the evening is warmed up by experimental guitarist Domen Gnezda.


Shackleton is one of the most influential and uncompromising figures in exploratory bass music culture. From his pioneering Skull Disco imprint with Appleblim and the seminal Fabric mix, Shackleton has been zig-zagging in increasingly adventurous musical directions, using prolific output on Honest Jon’s and his own Woe To The Septic Heart! label to hone a musical lexicon that has his customarily subtle serialist motifs, dazzling rhythmic tessellations and irrefutably dread, post-industrial low-end scored through its DNA. 


Spatial is an electronic musician and multimedia artist from London whose work pushes the dynamics of sound system culture incorporating low frequency vibration, hacked code, and optisonic experiments. An unconventional artist in the turbulent realm of bass music, Spatial combines a preoccupation with emergent behaviour, rule based repetition and chaotic systems with an ability to shape dubbed out, cracked and reductive sonics into audible geometric form. Through textured intricate production, Spatial’s releases and live sets bring corporeal presence carved out with a minimalist’s scalpel.


Domen Gnezda is one of the most versatile guitarists in the country, working at the crossroads of jazz, blues, experimental and electroacoustic music, improvisation and contemporary classical. He stretches his string sounds into intense interstices between dissonance and cosonance, between electric guitar sound and synthetic modulation, stretching, shredding, lengthening, overlapping, layering, fragmenting, texturalising, and introducing them into bouncing glitches. Nest’s music thus straddles the line between physicality, corporeality of sound, and transcending it, while sounding like a superb and singular hybrid between electronic music, IDM, song form, and openness with quiet reminiscences of jazz and blues.
