The presentation of contemporary musical creativity is within the framework of the Images of Notations exhibition. The programme - whose orientation is distinctly contemporary and original - has been part of the tradition of Bežigrad Gallery since 1978. The composers and groups presented are engaged in contemporary, experimental and minimalist music and incorporate into their music various environmental sounds.

Miloš Bašin - percussion, folk instruments
Aleš Gasparič - flutes, ocarina, pipes
Lado Jakša – wind instruments, keyboard
Boštjan Perovšek - computer, soundscapes

The band was established in 1977. At that time, it was the first and only ensemble combining organised improvisation, elements of experimental music based on various scores and instructions for performance, elements of minimalist (repetitive) music, and live or recorded electro-acoustic music of different sound origins. The band has retained this approach.

Alain Lithaud, French composer
Electro-acoustic music concert
Alain Lithaud, a composer of electro-acoustic music, was born on 30 January 1947 in Homécourt in France. He now lives and works in Paris. He entered the world of music through violin playing. As a young boy, he ‘played’ with sounds which he recorded on his father’s tape recorder. Ever since then, he has been interested in examining the field of tone colour and new technologies relating to computer synthesis and analysis. He conducts related research mainly in the Xenakis’ Research Centre, the CEMAMu, and the IRCAM Institute (Institute for Research and Coordination Acoustic/Music). He is engaged in developing sound processing software, such as AudioSculpt. He has acted as an ‘ear’ for movies where such tools were used (Vatel by Roland Joffé, The Romance of Astrea and Celadon by Eric Rohmer, etc.). For twenty-five years he has been teaching sound and listening to sound, as well as film set design, mainly at the European Film Institute and the Nancy 2 University. He was also a member of the OuSonMuPo (The Workroom of Sound and Musical Potential) which is close to the group OuLiPo (The Workshop of Potential Literature). He has created concert works both in France and abroad (Moscow, Lisbon, Ljubljana, etc). Lithaud, who has both scientific and literary qualifications, began to work in film (as director) and theatre at an early stage: initially, his main field of activity was performance and later soundscape design. This is reflected in his concert works, which are usually of a ‘hybrid’ nature, combining traditional instruments, electro-acoustic material and computer-generated sound transformations.

Original music concert, acoustic guitar, harmonica and vocals
Etbin Stefančič Edi was born in 1952 in Ljubljana. As both a musician and visual communications designer, he currently works in Ljubljana. At recitals, Stefančič usually performs his music alone; however, he is sometimes also accompanied by other musicians. Stefančič has been developing various forms of creative and artistic co-operation for over a decade. In the early 1980s, he joined the Sedmina ensemble, with whom he performed and recorded for several years. He combined musical and visual creativity in the following multimedia projects: Om produkcija, AVI – Avdiovizualni inženiring, Cavis and Inštitut Egon March. Stefančič published five original music recitals – Arctice horulae, 1975, Somrak, 1976, Verus status rei,1993, Tristiae et hilariae, 1996 and Equilibrium, 2001 – in which the sound of the classical guitar was often accompanied by diatonic harmonica and vocals. Since then, he has been engaged primarily in creating music for guitar and chamber ensembles. In 2005, Stefančič established the Ante portas ensemble, which gave the first performance of his suite-style work entitled Modus Vivendi. In 2009, he created a music score, Sancta simplicitas, intended for a similar ensemble. The recording of its first performance by Ante portas was published as a CD in the same year.
