MOlITVA / A PRAYER
Aware of the gravity of the task ahead, we are delighted to be part of the multicultural Europe and to contribute to the overall understanding of the sacral and secular sound tradition. Recognizable sounds of the past, generally accepted audio treasures that are parts of our musical heritage are incorporated into the present day acoustic paradigm. Applying the interactive radiophonic matrix, with the characteristic Balkan idiom and old-church music, author Zoran Hristić incorporated live performance composed of the most current sound-music-verbal segments, symbols of modern sacral and secular expression of humanity in a rich radiophonic arrangement.
This project, based on the idea and submitted synopsis by Zoran Hristic, is carried out by Zoran Jerkovic and Predrag D. Stamenkovic.
