Brane Zorman, composer, sound, radio artist and new media artist and Irena Pivka, architect, scenographer and new media artist are working together on a series of collaborative projects. Working through different backgrounds, they connect digital electroacoustic creativity with space, listening to works in situ, thus constituting a critical relation toward public space and contemporary social environment. In recent years, they have been focusing their common artistic expressions on the preparations of sound-walk performances (2.walk, Garden walk, Walk the city, FFF…), which, by means of transmission tools and sound pictures, through walking and listening establish space a new and reflect social reality. For in situ listening and moving through space, they are developing digital tools and sound maps. These works constitute perception of a space in a new way and strengthen the interaction/awareness of the landscape and listening. Their performative works investigate urban space through sound, listening and new media.
They founded CONA Institute for Contemporary Art Processing, which produces Steklenik, gallery for sound bioacoustics and art (partnership project of Cona and University Botanical Gardens Ljubljana, from 2018) and radioCona (radio Zone) radio art project which occasionally seizes the public space of radio frequencies. Every year radioCona hosts international artists and curators, producing and promoting radio and sound art.
