AnimotMUZIK is a concert series that takes place in parks and gardens throughout Slovenia. Invited musicians perform in natural environments, where the sound of non-human animals becomes the score or inspiration for their creation. The cycle is based on questioning established methods of musical expression and invites the audience to attentive listening. Emphasising a mindful experience of the soundscape, it spreads awareness of the importance of nature for human culture and its influence on artistic creation. It addresses an inclusive, compassionate, and sound-rich possible future, where the concept of music is not limited to the framework of Anthropocene thinking.

The ecological concert series starts every year in the spring, starting on the first Sunday in May, and marks the International Dawn Chorus Day.

A joint concert of birds and music artists Eduardo Raon, Tea Vidmar and Jure Boršič will be introduced by a zoomusicologist Katarina Radaljac’s lecture about interspecies sound art.
