Zavoloka & Laetitia Morais + Kotra
10 pm / 45’
Kotra is a moniker and the main art project of Ukrainian sound artist and promoter Dmytro Fedorenko, from Kyiv, Ukraine. For many years, Kotra has been exploring his own and his audiences’ perception limits, how music can affect the body and the mind at the most extreme points. The main idea behind all of Kotra’s releases and live concerts is finding a way for radical transformation through sound, as one of the most powerful abstract tools of communication. By sending extremely loud waves toward the audience, Kotra offers another look into the irritating and disturbing physical face of music, alongside its aesthetics side.
Zavoloka & Laetitia Morais, 11 pm
Zavoloka and Laetitia Morais have been collaborating since 2007, when they first met during their participation in an event in Portugal. Zavoloka’s music is deep and intrinsic, filled with several layers of pure sounds, and, despite its force, always keeps an organicity while combining with Laetitia’s visuals, who constantly searches out the affinity between physical and digital elements.
They both improvise on stage, so the set-up is open to unknown variations. It happens that the only premise for their show is the concept, which occurred during the release of Zavoloka’s albums Viter for wind, Vedana for water and the recent Volya for fire, all three of which will be revealed together for the first time in Ljubljana.
Together the two have had shows at Audiovisiva (Milan), Avalanche (Porto), Madeira Dig (Madeira), Rewire (The Hague), Cynetart (Dresden), Kvitvechir (Kiev), Europejski Stadion Kultury (Rzeszów), and Mózg – Bydgoszcz and Elbphilharmonie (Hamburg). (From the artists’ press kit material)
