Áron Porteleki Interview
In this video, A4 interviews drummer and musician Áron Porteleki about his practice.
Hungarian drummer and musician Áron Porteleki, known in Bratislava from his performance at the NEXT festival, but also from projects such as 12z, Dorota or Decolonize Your Mind Society, prepared a new concert project during his artistic residency in A4.
„Vigiler“ is based on his interest in what the world will look like in the near future, especially based on the shift in our cultural needs and the way we tend to create performative spaces. The solo performance revolves around atypical ways of recording and amplifying percussion instruments, experimenting with the limits of the stage and the space outside it, switching between acoustic and amplified sound or sharing the sonic and sensory experience of the instrument.
The performance was created as a part of the Visegrad Artist Residency Program and supported by the International Visegrad Fund. The video is produced by A4 as a part of New Perspectives for Action. A project by Re-Imagine Europe, co-funded by the European Union and supported using public funding by Slovak Arts Council and Bratislava City Foundation.
