about

To me the range of questions seem to be modern. These are the questions of an artificial intelligence, the space era, the Internet, and the changes in the sound environment around us. Questions of artificiality - as a part of a human are replaced by a mechanism induced from the outside, are a more or less new and necessary reflex. What constitutes the original human nature without the intricacies and structures introduced into it? What does this new comfort bring, a surge of satisfaction? Should humans strive for outer space, if they have not yet figured out their mental mechanisms and their primitive territorial wars?

The method of writing chosen for this work is also characteristic of this age. The toolbox is the performers, the improvising musicians, and, to a large extent, the editing table. Editing allows to combine organic matter with artificial, play with space and time on a different level than in the original operative composition. Collage has greatly influenced visual and sound art since the beginning of the 20th century, giving rise to many forms. In the course of the history of this method, the task, however, remains the same - to start, first of all, from the emotional response, sensation, found state, and not the technique itself. To some extent, we are dealing with "automatic writing" in improvisation, but each musician has developed reflexes, muscle memory, a set of techniques and individual traits that we love to recognize. It is also a mechanics and a system.
