Brane Zorman is a composer, sound and radio artist and founder of CONA. Based in Ljubljana, Slovenia, he has composed numerous sound works for theatre and dance performances, new media and internet events and projects. His work examines and explores the possibilities of processing, presenting, perceiving, understanding, positioning, manipulating and reinterpreting the sound and space. Employing old (analogue), digital technologies and techniques his work traverses the fields of music, multimedia and visual space. By using both sophisticated and simple tools he is developing strategies, methods, dynamic and interactive interpretation models, soundscapes, creating electronic and acoustic evolving sound sculptures.

Brane Zorman works with ready-made and transformed images, video clips and databases of vulkanos, lava bursts and explosions from the web and private collections. Out of the photos, locations, temperature variations, chemical reactions and recorded data he creates and manipulates live and pre-recorded sound sculptures and sequences that relate to colors, light intensity, shadows, contrast and shapes of the treated visual materials. He is transforming a visual representation of lava eruptions and flows (lines, points, cracks, amorphic- organic forms) to a sequencer score using various software tools and predefined parameters assigned to sensors thus driving and modulating sounds that are result of his field recording sessions. By analyzing visual sources he is building an unique and constantly changing compositional dynamics and dramaturgy of sound sculptures and sequences presented in a surround spatial performance, giving deep, emotional, sometimes scary and very physically intense low frequency experience, thus contrasting the relaxed, blending and fading, calm and monotonic video slide projection of the transformed photo sources in the background.

Brane will talk about his work and will perform Hidden Materia, a sound composition inspired by and conceived as an ongoing journey of the raw, liquid, vivid force of terrestrial magma carrying the unparalleled and hidden amount of energy and threat. “Hidden Materia” project was created and developed as a trilogy of live sound and video performances between 2012 and 2014.
