radioCona from Ljubljana

Zmajski most 1
Earlier this year I was invited to be part of radioCona, the "temporary project radio for contemporary arts" that is based in Ljubljana. Starting this Sunday, for five days, radioCona will broadcast on the FM bands, starting exactly at nightfall. "This is the time when the atmosphere is no longer filled with the fine sunlight, when the sun reaches 18 degrees or more below the horizon."

My composition "Caged Birds (Augmentation)" will be heard Monday. This is based on a dawn chorus, but there is something nice about it being transposed to the night-time. I believe that this is now the fifth country in which this composition has been presented.

Amidst the long and esoteric list of contributors are some friends and associates from Ireland: Fergus Kelly, Brona Martin, Liam Slevin. And then some famous names from soundscape history: Hildegard Westerkamp, Barry Truax.

More info can be found on their website. A big thanks to the curatorial team.

I am pleased to continue my ongoing artistic relationship with Slovenia in this way! Plans are also afoot for some new work and a performance in Ljubljana this summer.
