|Sound archives, albums and prints - 30. Sep. 2008|
Among latest news are collective improvisations from the Ljubljana part of Intermediate Spaces festival in November 2006, shortly followed by the Graz part also. In Graz/ Austria the festival took place from 23rd September to 1st October 2006 at ESC gallery, and in Ljubljana from 6th to 10th November 2006 at Kapelica gallery.
Part of Bostjan Leskovsek - Ror production from 2008 is The Desert of the Real. The sound collection is about listening anew and re-interpreting the noises of domestic machines, we are surrounded with daily. Author focuses on the alienating effects of re-contextualization - and the possibilites that open up - to "see", to "hear".
Alongside her participation at this year's Manifesta festival in Bolzano / Italy artist Milena Kosec prepared a leaflet Pocket-sized State and MK - the picture book of the compressed Pocket-sized State of Scarecrows and the introducing of a new brand name: contemporary career artist Milena Kosec - PERSONAL.
Borut Savski prepared three posters for the recent participation at Ars Electronica festival in Linz / Austria as part of the guest scene group of artists closely linked to Kapelica gallery Ljubljana. The Dancers poster is a seletion of texts and photos put together, to put some light on the thoughts and paths of creating the autonomous moving objects. The Round Table was initially made for a group exhibition at Modern gallery in LJubljan in 2005, where it was exhibited alongside the "metaphoric object" called The Round Table. This was made for appearance at the Kunstradio program at the Austrian national radio broadcaster a few years earlier. The Electric Jesus poster is a collection of texts written from 2005 onwards - while buiding the meta-religious moving crosses - also metaphorical objects. The poster was prepared for the Intermediate Spaces festival at ESC gallery in Graz.
In near future we will publish some more production related to the above, and a new segment: instructions to build a capacitive proximity sensor. In different context it is also called the theremin or termenvox and it is known to be the first electronic instrument. Some pieces were made for this year's Sajeta new music festival in Tolmin / Slovenia.

Two radioplays were produced by Vesna Debeljak and Borut Savski in 1997 within the framework of Minitry of experiment initiative. Two SF stories: Silver corridor by Harlan Ellison in translation of Samo Kuščer (published in Življenje in tehnika magazine in 1979) and the story that has been floting on the net at that time The Genesis according to Microsoft (author unknown, translated by Vesna Debeljak).
Two new old editions by Borut Savski from the Midi Conversions series are studies of algoritmic music from the yearst 1997/98. Midi2Happy is a collection of variations of the same computing algoritm, and More Midi Conversions is a selection of other similar studies that did not find way into other edititons from this series (e.g: Midi Sinfonietta).
There is a number of live performance recordings of a project group Problemloss (Matjaž Manček, Luka Prinčič, Borut Savski) from the year of 2005 / 2006 waiting to be selected (Live in EU?).
There is a number of collective improvisations from the festival Intermediate Spaces (Graz and Ljubljana) from the 2006.
Solos / duos will be the title of intimate moments of Borut Savski of recent years.
Archiving of the Ministry of experiment recordings (1997-2000) should start any moment now.
|Three new editions in store! - 20. Feb. 2008|
Tri nove spletne izdaje Trivia Records / Zapisi
V okviru založniškega projekta Trivia Records / Zapisi so izšle tri nove izdaje - nova videozvoča produkcija Boštjana Leskovška z naslovom Ror - Narava potrpežljivosti (2007) ter dva glasbena albuma iz arhiva Boruta Savskega: Midi Sinfonietta (produkcija 1997) in Random Activities (2001). Spletne izdaje so na voljo brezplačno.
O novih izdajah
Nova izdaja je videozvočno delo Ror - Narava potrpežljivosti (produkcija 2007, 2008). S tem delom je Boštjan Leskovšek otvoril ljubljanski del festivala Vmesni prostori (v zasnovi in koprodukciji KUD Trivia), ki je potekal en teden v novembru 2006 v galeriji Kapelica. Avtor je enourni posnetek jutranjega svita prenesel v galerijo v edino pošteni - neskrajšani obliki, čeravno (ali prav zato) tudi nekonzumni obliki. Na spletu je na voljo predogled video posnetka in celoten zvočni posnetek.
Random Activities / Zvočna naključja (producirano v letih 2000 in 2001) je zbirka študij algoritmičnih zvočnih organizmov, nastalih v računalniku. V zbirki je nekaj prvih avtorjevih primerov generativnega pristopa v ustvarjanju na področju računalniškega zvoka, princip pa je Borut Savski kasneje razširil tudi na druga polja.
Midi Sinfonietta je naslov skupka skladbic iz leta 1997, ki jih je Borut Savski sestavil v zaporedni zvočni tok in temu obesil bolj ali manj trivialno pripoved. Vsaka zgodba / drama je zaporedje nečesa v času, zato bi lahko bila pravšnja tudi katerakoli druga "solzava" zgodba.
