Short film Pudiya is now available for free viewing on YouTube. I have written the music and Massimiliano Borghesi, who is also based in Trieste, provided the sound design for this short drama. It has been our second collaboration with the US-based director Ratish Sekhar.
Genre Celebration Festival has nominated our recent short film Ten Till Seven / Deset do sedmih for Best Score (as well as Best Noir Film).
Here is the trailer of the film.
My new solo album is out! While this is not the very first record I release, it is a sort of debut for me as an electronic music artist. Outside of any particular genre boundaries, with no natural constraints of writing for a more collaborative media, this is my attempt to bring a very personal musical expression and inner sound world to life. I hope you enjoy this introspective exploration of the cold season!
Something totally different. New solo album titled The Comforting Warmth of Winter is coming on October 30, 2020!
The short film Skoraj polnoč / Almost Midnight was included in the program of the main annual film festival of Slovenia (Festival Slovenskega Filma) and can be viewed online until October 11.
Short mixes (about 20 minutes each) of my music for various media compiled by mood.
- Action, percussive, trailer impacts, epic, intense and dramatic tracks.
2. Moody, atmospheric, gloomy and soothing cinematic tracks.
3. Dreamy, relaxing, positive and romantic electronic-acoustic tracks.
I have sneaked into the local press with an interview about life in Trieste, literature, social activities, my film scores and other creative work.
Il Piccolo, Saturday June 27 2020
Today I have released an out-of-isolation ambient music album. Very slow-moving, atmospheric and time perception twisting soundscapes using various techniques of layering and disintegrating looping.
The lockdown due to the coronavirus began in the middle of March, the world outside suddenly stopped. With little activity the city noises were so subdued, by late afternoon it all sounded like night. This confusing, unusual, but soothingly peaceful situation made me search for some new ways to write music, without expecting some external reasons and deadlines to do so. Since it was prohibited to go anywhere much I looked up instead. For a week every day I was recording a video of the sky above my head and writing an ambient music track.
I tend to overthink and overwrite my music a lot, thanks to the academical music education perhaps. Self-imposing a challenge of finishing a small music piece every day was refreshing and creating an interesting shift in my workflow: there is no time for reflection, the only choice is to trust the intuition. I decided on some interesting technique to use and stick to for each track as a tool for constructing an emotional journey. Maybe this method allows to capture something unique that might get lost in music that went through months and months of work?
Reviewing and improving these tracks further took much longer than originally writing them. I didn’t want to clean them up of all imperfections, but rather to make them technically appropriate for any mode of listening while preserving their in-the-moment essence.
Here are five skywatching moments of the quarantine. Did time go faster or slower in isolation? And where did Monday and Thursday go anyway?..
The album is free to download in your favorite format (mp3, flac, wav…).
