SUper Saxophone Quartet is a band made up of acclaimed musicians from Slovenia, Serbia, Hungary and Ukraine; Gabor Bunford (soprano, alto), Max Kochetov (alto), Adam Klemm (tenor) and Jasna Jovićević (baritone). All of them are band leaders, composers and excellent improvisers; although their quartet smoothly blends, it contains the individual expressions. Saxophone quartet repertoire includes original contemporary composed and improvised music, modern jazz, distinguished but easy to listen. The intensity and dynamics of harmony that four saxophones create, provide an authentic atmosphere and musical experience interesting not only for jazz and contemporary music lovers.
This trio brings musical freshness with its originality, open forms and freedom. All three musicians are known for improvisation, composition and contemporary approach in chamber jazz. They play original music, mostly spontaneously composed. In November 2018, within the Artist and Residence program in Novi Sad, in addition to collaborative workshops and performances, they recorded their first joint album. Since then, they are on tours.
Exhibition of a performance created in the visual, instrumental, vocal and dance interaction of four artists, Andreja Kulunčić (visual artist, Croatia), Annette Giesriegl (vocalist, Austria), Zrinka Užbinec (dance artist and choreographer, Croatia), Jasna Jovićević (saxophonist and composer, Serbia)
The artists explore the possibility of dialogue and the exchange of ideas through improvisation, in order to achieve interaction in the broad range of their own areas. The objective is to achieve a collective artistic practice that comes into being at the intersection of space, movement and audio articulation within the spatial, semantic and political potentials of the site. Elements of individual expression are no longer restricted to affective reactions of the given and uniform artistic field. During this creative event, constantly repeating unknowns are recognised. The principle of equality of different artistic techniques within the process can form a new practice, the outcome of which is a potential original vocabulary of new expressions.
The act of creating itself – playing on a scene is a whole issue that represents authentic form of multimedial performance. During the performance on ‘ASL’ sculptures a spiritual ars-integral improvised form is created, between a new form of instrument (‘ASL’ sculpture), a new authentic sound and a new way of aliquotal playing and singing.
