Rdeča Raketa (Red Rocket) is the electronic music duo of Maja Osojnik and Matija Schellander. Their new project …and cannot reach the silence deals with the current world of misunderstandings, communicating past each other, willingly and unwillingly overlooking or ignoring each other’s meanings via various fast-paced forms and platforms of communication; and, with that, the tightening of incompatible parallel »realities«. It explores forms of violence; physical and verbal, external and self-inflicted. It explores forms of power; the dangerous thin line between giving power to and giving power over oneself, and forms of subjugation and addiction on both societal and, more significantly, on interpersonal levels. »… Look at us! Beasts, bottomless pits, never to be full! To be fulfilled. Glued onto each other in sweat, a never-ending pain and evenly spread, at all times…«.

In those dark, dystopian lyrics, full of questions, such as, »What is being said and what stays unspoken? Who does it refer to? Who is protecting whom? For what reasons? Who is being addressed or what needs to be considered?« the wish, the need and the struggle for self-empowerment, honesty, love and reconciliation is exposed or, at the very least, nourished.

Rdeča Raketa combines abstract electronic sounds with heavy beats, inspired by acousmatic and industrial music, as well as hip hop. The artful interweaving of spoken and sung language (based on Osojnik’s texts) coalesces with the collaged sound material. Modular synthesizers and cut-up samples mixed with manipulated CD players and recordings of acoustic instruments and field recordings, along with elaborate sound processing, ultimately creates a wondrously heterogeneous mixture. (Michael Ternaj, 2012)

For the opening of the Slovenian country focus, Maja Osojnik presents a specially designed program and expands her duo with the Slovenian singer Irena Tomažin and the Austriakian turntable player Dieb13 alias Dieter Kovacic. Topla dobrodošlica! CH

LILAMORS is a new project of old friends. It is a rebirth, transformation, and continuation of ACTS! duo, formed in 2019 by Ana Čop and Thilo Seevers.

Creating a dialogue between contrasting musical elements and influences, the three award-winning artists explore sonor boundaries and in their lyrics give space to topics that are often sidelined in modern life.

With a crystal-clear poetic chant (Ana Čop), accompanied by snowflake-like piano playing (Thilo Seevers) and subtle electronica (Jaka Arh) they offer a unique style-fluid musical experience, creating a mystical atmosphere that blurs the line between real and unreal.
