"Balance is most beautiful just before it collapses"
Peter Fischli & David Weiss (Equilibres)

Composer and sound artist based in Zagreb, Croatia. Interdisciplinary approach lies at the heart of my artistic interests, whether it's drawing upon the aesthetics of kinetic art, literature or linguistics. I view my work through the perspective of a heterotopia — a narrative framework, an ontological space in which fragments of possible narrative orders coexist simultaneously without an implicit hierarchy. I'm interested in (de)constructing these spaces through juxtaposition and collision of elements, distorting them from their original image and position in the narrative, while emphasizing the transitory arrangement of the musical objects choreographed into moments of delicate suspension.
