Concert for Immortals / opening of Nova Synagoga

For 6 years we have been reconstructing the New Synagogue in Žilina, one of the most important items of cultural heritage related to modern architecture in Slovakia, designed by the German architect Peter Behrens, for six years.
All those who could, helped, the EU funding programs and the EEA Grants, the Ministry of Culture, the City of Žilina, various foundations, the local football club, major and minor sponsors, producers of construction materials, but it is these people whose contribution was the greatest. Not because they gave the largest sums, but rather because their donations involved their own money and time. This is why they are immortal and this is why the musical composition was created wherein we tried to record the names of all donors and volunteers over the past six years.

The composition was written by Marek Piaček and recorded by the male choir Octet Singers led by Jozef Chabroň. It will be forever heard within the building’s structure — one only needs to put their ear to its walls. On Friday 12 May it will be sung live in the Synagogue,
name after name — and there are almost 3,000 of them. It will be a special one-time occasion — the opening ceremony of this new cultural space, even though the construction is not yet completely finished. We will be happy to see you. There will be a presentation of a selection of photographs by Dalibor Adamus, Marek Jančúch, Natália Zajačiková, Peter Snadík and Richard Kohler, documenting the six years of construction and restoration works and the cultural events that took place during the several so-called semi-openings. The price of admission is pay what you want, but due to the limited capacity, we would like to ask you to make a reservation by e-mail at

Concert: Tittingur, BIOS, Herzog Herzog

Liquid electronics, a monochrome ambient, or dirty techno - all of in one combined by Exitab brand. The latest work of the duo Bios is conceptually linked to a specific type of minerals, showing the fluorescent nature only after a sunset. Fresh album Fluorescent minerals combines hypnotic drones, precise sound design, organic and dirt of analogue boxes and guitar surfaces with crystal clear electronics.
Tittingur is a techno duo based in Bratislava and Copenhagen. Their intense, stunning, almost dance electronics has its grim Lynchian atmosphere and dirty sound close to making people like Tim Hecker, The Body or Container. Peter Janovicky, known as Herzog Herzog for several years, combines beat-oriented electronics and psychotic analogue textures into seemingly unrelated formations. What is called experimental electronics at home is in fact a perfectly controlled electronic dada-pop.
