Ambient Distancing

Every day during the last week I was recording and releasing an ambient music track with a video. I called this series Ambient Distancing / The World in Quarantine. In these times of absent external deadlines this was a new way for me to approach creativity in a disciplined manner. Instead of the usual obsessive perfectionism, to finish writing quickly, I had to just let it flow and let it go. But maybe it captures something unique that might get lost in music that went through month and months of work?

Each video is the sky about Trieste, Italy (and, of course, it couldn’t be any to the location due to the strict movement limitations).

These daily ambient explorations are playing with creative looping, slow polyrhythmic structures and layering. The sound palette includes synths, soft guitars, processed textures and pianos.

Piano City Trieste

This September Trieste will be the location of a very exciting festival Piano City, filling up numerous public spaces with all types of music for piano, three days in a row. And I am honoured to be part of it.

A totally new program for solo piano that I will perform on Sunday, September 15, consists mostly of my own compositions, some very recently finished, and a few short classical music pieces. This is an easy-listening experience (compared to a strictly classical concert) that will fit casual classical and cinematic music listeners.

13 – 15 September 2019

LOCATION: Lettera Viva
Viale XX Settembre, 31/B, Trieste
TIME: 15:00

The venue is a beautiful cozy tea room with an upright piano. That’s one of many locations of the Piano City Trieste festival this September.

Romantic, charming and cinematic: a blend of original pieces, b-sides from my works for films, and a touch of classics. The performance will be about 45-50 minutes long. Welcome!

Blue Bunny First Awards

The short film Modri zajček / Blue Bunny that I had the pleasure to write music for, was selected for several festivals and has won two awards at the Mindfield Film Festival – Albuquerque, as well as a very fitting “Best Original Idea” at the Top Indie Film Awards in Tokyo.

The same festival has honored me with a nomination for the Best Music.

And most of the crew gathered together at the Slovenian FLIF Festival last weekend for the screening.

Rudhiram Short Film Poster

Short film Rudhiram I have written original music for will be available soon to watch online. This is a film in Mayalayam language filmed in the United States. Drama and tension building that was a lot of fun to score, plus a more emotional theme that naturally developed in the process.

UPD: the film is now freely available to watch on YouTube.

Burdie Short Animation

Here is Burdie, a funny little cartoon about a bird that is too chubby to fly. This animated short film was created by a young talented animator from the United States Justina Hnatowicz and features my original soundtrack.

It was a really smooth process scoring this animation and we have found the soundtrack style very quickly: fun, catchy and with a bit of a retro touch. I did some post audio editing and mixing, but most sound design was recorded by Justina herself.
