Improvisation on 8 chanel coposition INSECTA Cantata by composer Braneta Zormana in the frame of AnimotMUZIK

Zoomusicological cycle is sound research that encourages participating artists to interact and create together with non-human animals. Each individual concert evening will present several different musicians that will improvise on the same music, composed of sounds and music by animals. The composition will be prepared by the residence composer or sound artist. Musicians will be encouraged to respond to the compositions and, by doing that, create an indirect sound interaction. The cycle animotMUZIK opens new ways of performing, collaboration, and listening among individuals of humankind and beyond it.
