Antropoloops, musical collage from Spain
Friday the 29 th of June, 9 PM
The Layer House's Terrace

Antropoloops is one of the most unique proposals in the Andalusian scene, combining remix, ethnomusicology and data visualization. Rubén Alonso generates new songs by mixing different samples from throughout the world geography. Also, in the process, he shows us the collage cover, the year and the place of origin of the sound sample, through a data visualization tool developed by Esperanza Moreno.

Antropoloops comes from Spain and is specialised in unique sound collage. He has done several project performances, mostly in Spain, but also abroad. This year, in february, he performed at The MENT festival in Ljubljana.

Music: Nika Perunovič & Marko Zaletel  
Collage visuals: Meta Šolar

Saturday the 30 th of June, 9 PM
The Layer House's Terrace

In 2016 Nika Perunovič, the leading voice of the famous group Patetico, received the Vox Populi award for her singer-songwriter performance at the Kantfest festival. She upgrades her singing potential with guitarist Marko Zaletel. As Jani Kenda described Nika in Slovenske novice newspaper - "she is a natural and has emotional, sincere and heartfelt interpretation, her musical phrasing touches in the same way Billie Holiday as it does modern hip hop singers, her interpretation gives Slovene language a new sound so special that it cannot be described - you simply have to hear it." 

You also simply have to see the collages that Meta Šolar, painter from Radovljica, will create during the concert. Metka is an academic painter and in 2014 she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design. She is a member of the Slovenian Association of Fine Arts Societies and of the Fine Arts Association Kranj. She has participated in several collective and solo exhibitions in Slovenia and Europe. She explores primarily the female image, flattening the formless faces into a floral pattern or making it dynamic with fruit motifs. She is interested in what occurs and what is left when the individual character disappears.

Bordo and Maruša Štibelj: Live Soundscapes
Sunday the 1 st of July, 9 PM
The Škrlovec Tower

Bordo, the brand new music world of Tomaž Štular, former lead singer of The Tide, will finally see the light of day on the stage. Since his first single Odplešiva, recorded in 2016, to this day, when the 5 th single Lai Lai Svet (production Peter Penko) can be heard all over the radio, the time has finally arrived for all the songs to fulfil their potential on the stage.

For his last two singles Zvezde v mlaju and Lai Lai Svet Tomaž joined forces with a painter and collage maker Maruša Štibelj, who created a unique video image for each musical composition. It is about time that Maruša and Bordo with guests take you, images and music to a special audiovisual event.

It is not a concert, nor an exhibition, it is a performance. The interplay of Maruša’s collage world and techniques will come alive on stage, next to the music, and it will raise questions such as: What is theatrical scenery and what stage? Who draws the line between the audience and the performer? Can we place it elsewhere?
