Silba Sound Map



September 2019 I was invited by SEA - Silba Environment Art to harvest sonic morphologies of this magical island situated in the North Adriatic.

Silba island has an area of 15 square kilometers, shaped as number 8, with the village of Silba located at the narrowest point in the middle. There are no cars, only tractors & popular hand-pulled "karić" wheels. Famous 50 years old boat Lastovo stops in Silba every day during summer season. Population varies from aprox 200 year round, to significantly more during tourist season.

Ontologija nemara



Ontologia nemara or SOAAMS / Sonic Ontology of the Artificial Aquatic Micro Spaces, is a long-duration listening & soundscape research, that takes the sonic record of particular micro space as a starting point in intuitive electro-acoustic composing (with simple acts & by re-imagining the space-time geometries through the means of music & mnemopoetics).

SOAAMS resonates toward recognizing sonic imprints of the memory of the space that can be found (sensed) through listening & prolonged observation.

site-specific sound interventions



3 improv performers from Belgrade found themselves in natural setting of Adriatic island of Korčula, soon finding a perfect place for the site specific session, settled in the pine forest by an old quarry at Lenga, above village of Lumbarda.

The Black Isle / Crni otok



The Black Isle by Manja Ristic is now out. Available on cassette and digital.

Incredibly detailed field recordings and electro-acoustic textures, this album tells a story using pure earthly sound and will be the cheapest plane ticket to Korčula that you will find, which is where this album came to life.

The cover art is an oil on canvas painting from the series Strange Waves by Simonida Rajcevic.
As always, a big thank you to Flesh and Bone Design for the lay out of the tape.
For a limited time, European fans can order the tape at a discounted shipping price.
