Triple convert event in The ZVO.ČI.TI so.und.ing DUO series will present two unique artists from different parts of the globe. Anna Friz and Maja Osojnik will perform one solo song each, ending the concert evening with a premiere piece cinema for the ears created for this event.
Anna Friz: under lines
Routes and roads, power and pipes, signs and signals. Underground and overhead, they hum, hiss, announce, gurgle, and gulp; flickering and sometimes faltering. Hard and soft infrastructures, in process and in relationship. Sound is a surplus which reveals their activity, their eccentricity, and their ongoing change. under lines is a series of sonic observations, dreams, and nightmares of urban infrastructures gathered from temporary living in multiple cities.
Maja Osojnik: Bleached
Using “mistaken sounds” / sounds that happened in different private recordings, that were ment to fulfill an intended goal, but came out as the result of digital mistakes, unwillingly distorted, overdriven, phase shifted, useless. those unforeseen sounds, the “rejects” now make the perfect reality.
Anna Friz and Maja Osojnik: cinema for the ears (premiere work, 2015)
A live performance collaboration inspired by cinematic atmospheres and methods of sound production, including phonography, foley effects, and musical narrativity. Spaces are conjured sonically, panned across, and passed through, using electronic and acoustic instruments, found objects, and field recordings.

In 2015 ZVO.ČI.TI so.und.ing DUO series, which throws a spotlight on music duos, remains tightly focused on opening up contemporary music approaches and combining and connecting home and international musicians. Not unexpectedly, the fact of combining perspectives, methodologies, technologies, and aesthetics of producing new music works brings up the question of the potentials of a dialogically conditioned creativity.
ZVO.ČI.TI so.und.ing DUO series presents independent works and performances of selected authors, rounded off with a co-authored composition. In this way, we get an insight into the heterogeneous aesthetic, political, and personal approaches to music composition as well as into the possible transformations, upgrades, slips, and gaps arising in the space of liminality and overlapping – at a point where singular is replaced by dual. The form of a duo is namely not chosen by the authors themselves, but is proposed from the outside. The invitation is a starting point to be reflected upon as a field of potentiality; through dialogue, exchange, and collaborative work at a distance and live, it emerges and takes shape as a new sound work. It finds and develops new connections, inter-personal and international collaborations and networking, with Ljubljana being the connecting point of these encounters and the heart of the pulse that propels these connections.
