Red Min(e)d: Sound – (non)articulated spaces of social imagination, introduction

Svetlana Maraš: Where is my sound art?
participative performance and lecture

Participative performance of the piece Pendulum music (2010) is followed by the comparative analysis of this work and Pendulum music made in 1968 by Steve Reich. This introduces us to the works of conceptual artists and composers from the 1960s’s where we search for the origins of what we recognize today under the term “sound art”. Following the idea of early experimental music as an opposing force to traditional understanding of musicality at large, we are exposed to the examples from history that depict the increasing urge of introducing extra-musical elements in music, which was a driving force for the emergence of sound art.

Svetlana Maraš: Sound performance

For years, she has been using sound as a tool for exploration of musical form, expression and meaning in the wider artistic context. She studied composition at Belgrade University of Art and Sound in New Media at Aalto University in Helsinki. Her works have been composed for and within various media. She is exploring the boundaries of musical being with realization of musical ideas through sound, text, physical object or digital technology. Her fascination with the relation of music and everyday object resulted in theoretical research Embodied composition: Treatment and meaning of physical object in experimental music and sound art that was a part of her graduate thesis at Media Lab, Helsinki.

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA –

Museum of Transitory Art

MoTA is a multidisciplinary platform dedicated to advancing the research, production and presentation of transitory, experimental, and live art forms.

MoTA is a museum without a permanent collection or a fixed space. Instead, its programs are realised in different locations and contexts in temporary physical and virtual spaces.

MoTA organizes and supports transitory art in the form of continuous events, exhibitions and educational programs both locally and internationally. As its name indicates, MoTA examines what a museum can be today and in the future.

MoTA is in constant search for the new, the uncertain, and the undefined.

MoTA works on several continuous programmes & projects. We run MoTA Point – a Space for Art & Ideas, we curate and produce the annual SONICA Festival, in addition to regular music programmes such as SONICA Series and SONICA Classics.

Within the years of running our residency programme, we’ve established T.R.I.B.E. – a network of residency spaces in the Balkans & Eastern Europe.

We’ve also initiated the research and archive platforms and Mediateque MoTA & Tomaž Brate. Our educational programmes serve a broader audience with ongoing workshops, talks, symposia, and internships.
