in the second part we continue with improvisations from the swiss balkan creative music project that took place from spring 2007 to spring 2008 in prishtina and skopje with musicians from different countries of balkan and from switzerland.
"The project happened in several cities on Balkans and several concerts in this cities happened mixing swiss with balkan musicians. The aim of this project is to develop new links between swiss and balkan musicians in the field of contemporary improvised music. The working sessions offered the musicians the possibility to explore together new and fresh practices in electro-acoustic improvised music. The music is made of sonic architectures, colours and textures and moves between pure sound and abstract noise complexity."[kanal103, skopje, macedonia]
