    World premiere, album release

    With an unusual instrumentation and a line-up featuring three grand masters of their instruments, Gantar presents a highly charged work for a quartet that builds on the traditions of modernism and contemporary sound art. The ambitious constellation, which is just
    the beginning of the composer’s experimental practice, radically re-examines the established principles of avant-garde artistic processes, combining diverse sound ontologies with great vigour. The result is unity, collective strength in sound; transcending the here and now, going beyond the generational divides and influences.

    Due to the cancellation of his European tour Ben LaMar Gay will not perform at the 64th Ljubljana Jazz Festival.

    Artistic Directors (SI): Bogdan Benigar, Borja Močnik, Andrej Dré Hočevar*
