Structural Confrontation – In Accompaniment to Sound Disobedience 2018

“The festival Sound Disobedience emerged as an echo of the confrontation within a seemingly homogenous music practice known as free improvisation. This confrontation is its key moment, for it tears apart the seeming unity of this music practice and presents it in its own diversity.”

Jazzarije (notes on 60. Jazz festival Ljubljana)

The article is a commentary with some observations and notes to the recent jazz festival in Ljubljana. The title is borrowed from past radio show from Radio Študent, dedicated to jazz and improvised music. In the spirit of this show, it is a must that the “centralala’s” article is not only a chatter about Jazz festival Ljubljana.

Sound and the world in Ljubljana

In March we visited several improvised music events at various locations in Ljubljana. We were invited to choose three events: Impronedeljek at Kino Šiška, Zlatko Kaučič Trijo at Hostel Celica and festival Neposlušno at Španski borci; we also visited Defonija at Klub Gromka on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Radio Študent.

Anomalies of different concert spaces

The review is focusing on concert series in February, their sound similarities and their spatial placement at Klub Gromka, Channel Zero, Klub Metulj, Bar Prulček and ŠKUC Gallery.
