ŠIROM (koncert)

ŠIROM (koncert)

Prostrano vodilo prekmursko-tolminsko-kraške naveze Širom je prepletanje raznolikih glasbenih pristopov in orodij, zgodovin zvena ter čiste muzikalno-rokodelske domišljije. Iztok Koren, Samo Kutin in Ana Kravanja v triu vkupno naštejejo preko deset inštrumentov in vsaj toliko danih oblik muzik, ki bi jih lahko prepoznali kot navdih karakterju nove zasedbe. Vendar so praktično in doživljajsko dovolj globoko zazankani v lastno snovno početje, da se jim uspe izogniti zgolj odsevanju obstoječih vzorcev. Ustvarjajo samosvoj, stilsko homogen izraz, razpet med široko polje ljudskih zvenov in sodobnih akustično-rockerskih meditacij. Kar naposled slišimo je prizemljen, vendar še vedno mističen minimalizem.

Glasba Širom je kontemplativna, po nuji in potrebi tudi ostra glasba, bolj bendovske kot komorne, bolj ulične kot urbane nravi.

Člani Širom so dejavni še v drugih glasbenih zasedbah in projektih, kot so ŠKM banda, Hexenbrutal, Najoua, Samo Gromofon in Horda grdih.

Iz medijev:


"It occasionally recalls the junkyard compositions of Moondog, the hypnotic tuned percussion of Steve Reich, the controlled chaos of the Art Ensemble of Chicago, or the shanty-town minimalism of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra." **** The Guardian

“This music is syncretic, working folk, medieval, drone and traditional musics into complex, intuitive improvisations …. Full of guttural incantations, circling chants, clattering percussion. A deep-breathing, ecstatic joy.” 8/10 Uncut

“Mostly instrumental folk manoeuvres that are trad at root, but dreamlike and cubist in their arrangements, and played on a vast array of stringed things and percussive gizmos.” **** Buzz magazine

“This is deeply enjoyable music that refuses to be anything but itself and is joyful because of it.” 5/5 UK Vibe

“As poetically wondrous as it is (sometimes) supernatural and otherworldly … There are really few musical excursions and explorations quite like it.” Monolith Cocktail

"Fascinating music that you can easily become addicted to, in short, that's what it comes down to." - Moors Magazine
