In this 40-minute-long program, we will present fragments of compositions by selected artists, which showcase the above or underwater sonic scapes of the Adriatic Sea.

All of the featured sound works can be listened to in their entirety within the sonoAdriatic tales program.

The Sonic Adriatic Garden is a special part of the project, devoted to the sonic wilderness of the Adriatic Sea, which offers the audiences a chance to immerse themselves into under/above water soundscapes of the region.

Audiences are invited to open their ears and listen to the vast array of sounds, among them the sound mapping of the Korčula Island, an artist’s reflection on the tides, the circulation of the water body, and the melodies of diving in submerged caves of the Quarner bay area. Some of the tales deal with underwater noise pollution and showcase the human sonic impact on the underwater habitat and marine life, as well as the presence of morphologies hidden in the palimpsests of memory of the places once heavily exploited in the name of urbanization, tourism and industrial progress that marks the Adriatic Sea

The sonoAdriatic tales featured artists and their works:
Brane Zorman – Sea Urchin Underwater Walk
Saša Spačal – Tides
Roberto Vodanović Čopor – The Mist Where the Circle Begins
Ivo Vičić – Undersea
Leah Barclay – Shifting Nature (part of the Ocean Listening project)
Robertina Šebjanič – Aquatocene
Manja Ristić – Succubus Mnemonics

Brane Zorman. Composer, sound and radio artist, sound manipulator and producer. His work examines and explores the possibilities of processing, presence, perception, understanding, positioning, manipulating and reinterpreting sounds and space(s) with special focus on uncovering the unseen, unheard and hidden nature and artificial sounds.

Saša Spačal. Postmedia artist working at the intersection of living systems research, contemporary and sound art. Her artistic research focuses on entanglements of the environment-culture continuum. She addresses the posthuman condition that involves mechanical, digital and organic logic within biopolitics and necropolitics of our times.

Roberto Vodanović Čopor. Multimedia artist. In his music he often combines the sounds of nature or the sounds of cities, and as a background he uses the sounds created from everyday objects.

Ivo Vičić. Sound recordist, wildlife sound recordist and music producer. His portfolio includes sounds for documentaries, ambient music, art installations, sound backgrounds etc. His field recordings are included in British library catalogue.

Leah Barclay. Sound artist, designer and researcher. Leah’s research and creative work has investigated innovative approaches to recording and disseminating the soundscapes of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems to inform conservation, scientific research and public engagement.

The work of Robertina Šebjanič revolves around the biological, chemical, political and cultural realities of aquatic environments and explores humankind’s impact on other species and on the rights of non-human entities, while calling for strategies emphatic towards other species to be adopted.

Manja Ristić. Violinist, sound artist, curator, and researcher mostly active in the field of instrumental improvisation, soundscape composition & experimental sound-related arts. Her work is blending exploration of intuitive composition and sonic ecologies.
