Under (Accu)Pressure

Tension within society, pandemics, increasing uncertainty and lack of stability: the pressure in today’s world is coming from all directions and it is not easy for people to face it. We have no universal solutions at hand and each and everyone of us is trying to deal with the situation in its own way. Anything is possible, and everything is allowed. Alternative healing methods, meditation, spirituality, esoterica, acupressure…

Has the art anything to say in this situation, especially when celebrating its Birthday? We invited musicians and artists that will offer you a live therapeutic session and a massage to your ears by pressing the keyboards and turning knobs and buttons as they feel. Key words being electronics, interactivity and above all improvisation in real time. After all, the best works are created under pressure, right?

Our programme for this year´s evening full of unconventional experimental music is created in cooperation with the A4 Space for Contemporary Culture in Bratislava. Thanks to live connection and satellite transmission, you are cordially invited to join us in celebrating the Art´s 1000,059 Birthday with the premiere and at the same time the last performance of UNDER (ACCU) PRESSURE, the improvised electroacoustic radio opera, broadcast on the waves of RTVS, Radio Devin and live on HAYDN, on 17 January in the time from 19:00 to 19:20 GMT.

Performing Artists:
Alexandra Cihanská Machová, Erika Coyle, Zuzana Husárová, Slávo Krekovič, Oliver Rehák
Concept: Slávo Krekovič
