Artefacts #2 - Sara Glojnarić International Festival of Contemporary Music Warsaw Autumn

go to content

Artefacts #2 represents a crossover between two conceptual pools I have been generating compositional materials from the sugarcoating series, which deals with parametric aspects of pop music (reduction and homogenisation of pitch, rhythm and texture, repetitions) and the Artefacts series, which plays with the immediate and secondary nostalgia that pop music evokes. This performatively demanding piece builds itself upon a list of Top 20 Drum Intros, mostly taken from famous 80s and 90s rock songs, from bands/performers such as The Police, Nirvana, U2, Iggy Pop, Toto etc. All pieces in the Artefacts series are accompanied by a Spotify playlist (titled Artefacts Playlists) which can be expanded by other users and their nostalgic references.
