collection of scores

In March 2018 I presented an exhibition of graphic, photo and object-scores under the title "Treperenja". The concept involves interdisciplinary research of multi-modal perception and synesthesia, in observing “the body of memory through the body of sound”.

I invited improvisers and artists from around Europe to interpret the scores and be presented to general public in Belgrade during the exhibition hosted by Independent Cultural Centre "Kvaka 22".

The book examines morphology of sound, and refers to its concrete impact through emotional experiences revealed as an energy transpositions in building memory fractals through everyday situations.

Fairy & the River Teeth ~ digital release

s o u n d   a r t   c o l l e c t i o n

First solo collection made for Sonospace by Manja Ristić has particular imaginative atmosphere, created through an attempt to produce organic integration of field recordings and instrumental improvisation. The author builds fractal structures with the sounds from her immediate surrounding and amplifies their original information through careful processing, intuitive composing and concept.

The collection has rather eclectic tone and deals with emotional states of isolation and mental claustrophobia building the almost dystopian escapes with ambient textures and unusual instrumental lyricism.

Digital release // Iza kapije

a m b i e n t   i m p r o v

First release with long term collaborators - duo PonTon from Belgrade. PonTon are soundscape storytellers since 2008. Duo consisting of Igor Stangliczky on electronics and Marko Jevtić on guitar with effects, blends electro-acoustic noise and improvisation. Their signature sound is heavy use of processed field recordings, circuit bent synthesizers and layered acoustic guitar textures. PonTon plays soundtracks for imaginary movies with improvised themes, and misty and moody atmospheres for all daydreamers out there.
