Concert Alessandro Cortini, Gašper Torkar and Kikimore / FESTIVAL OF CONTEMPORARY ELECTRONIC MUSIC AND TRANSITORY ART SONICA 2019
Alessandro Cortini, also a member of the Nine Inch Nails group, has taken a prominent place in the world of synthesizers and music technology through his solo work. His last album AVANTI from 2017 was planned around a live audio-visual performance combining the old Super 8 archive footage of his family and early childhood with the melodic epics recorded and performed with a multitrack cassette player, rendering the sound and image with the familiar noisy nostalgia. His new poetic audio-visual concert will take place in Ljubljana, just a day after the release of the new Volume Massimo record by MUTE Records.

Gašper Torkar is a multifaceted artist working primarily with language and sound within different contexts. Beside exploring club music, he contributed music for several theatre pieces, installations and performances, film and ballet. His distorted ambient soundscapes captured on his debutant EP Dreams of Others, released at the Ljubljana’s Kamizdat label in 2017, are rife with heavy, damp passages made up of ubiquitous noise.

Kikimore is a collective of six female sound explorers, experimenting and creating ambient noise soundscapes since 2016. Their fundamental principle is improvisation within a basic structure, developing the skill of each member’s personal and unique music expression, looking for patterns in which both mostly DIY analogue music instruments and their users interact and respond to each other and individually contributing to group’s overall musical expression. They work in constructed units or dimensions, allowing flexibility and variety of the members in the way their entire musical structures work, making them scalable and modular.
