ZVUK 100 is a new experimental music and performing program run by contemporary circus collective ROOM 100 with an aim to introduce experimental and ambiance electronic music to the local community and tourists in Split and surrounding cities. ZVUK 100 hosts different musicians/artists from Croatia, region and Europe and on June 27th 2019 we are hosting Swedish-Finnish artist Marja Ahti.
Marja Ahti is an artist working with field recordings and other acoustic sound material combined with synthesizers and electronic feedback, investigating the border where sounds start to mimic each other or communicate. She creates precise musical narratives with slowly mutating textures of detailed acoustic sound and intuitively tuned sustained tones with gentle microtonal beatings. She works with field recordings in a neither documentaristic nor purely acousmatic way, but rather starting out from in between these approaches, hovering between abstraction and the deeply familiar, moving into a realm of poetic metaphor where sounds are set in relation to each other, fleetingly mirroring and shadow-dancing.
Ahti has been performing in numerous festivals and events in Europe, USA and japan. Ahti has been a part of the Finnish experimental music scene for more than ten years in different constellations and is currently active in the duo Ahti & Ahti with her partner and as member of the Himera collective. With her debut LP under her own name, Vegetal Negatives, out in March this year on the Swiss label Hallow Ground, Ahti explores a new formal language and sonic palette that ventures far off the path of her earlier work.
The entrance is free!
