TILT

Tomaz Grom – double bass

Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec – live electronics (Max/Msp)

 

Founded in 1999, TILT is based on sound experimentation, and is busy with improvisation and structural approach to music making.

The first Tilt project was CD Dvojnik/The Double (1999) which was collaboration with Slovene poet Primoz Cucnik.

There, we were combining concrete sounds with improvised material in a song-like forms, and were exploring possibilities of translating spoken word into musical experience in a communicative way. The album consists of seven poems set against sound environments and three purely musical pieces. The CD is a hybrid of  “hit songs”, improvisations, environmental soundscapes, musical compositions, and sound experiments.

Since 2003 Tilt is focusing on creating sound textures and musical structures by means of live processing of acoustical instrument. This process on one hand alters and expands expressive range of instrument, and on the other hand places instrument in different acoustical context, which then requires different way of playing the instrument itself. Tilt is walking on the border between acoustical and electronic, merges, juxtaposes and also cancels out each other sometimes.

So far Tilt has improvised with: Will Guthrie, Duo The Same Girl, Sabine VogelLuka Ropret and Pavle Rakar.
