NOISS presents: Heinali
In collaboration with our partnered audience development project NOISS, this year’s NEXT Festival features musicians from Norway, Iceland, Slovakia and beyond, thanks to the support of the EEA Grant scheme in Slovakia.
Our music showcase organized with NOISS (Norway – Iceland – Slovakia): New Music for New Audiences opens on 28 September at the P. O. Hviezdoslav City Theatre in Bratislava with a concert by Kyiv-based composer and musician known as Heinali. Composer and sound artist based in Kyiv will perform a set for solo modular synthesizer, an instrument he has mastered over the past two decades of sound practice. His last few full-length albums have all been released on experimental label Injazero Records, lastly the critically acclaimed Madrigals (Contemporary Album of the Month in The Guardian) which combined modular synthesis with historical instrumentation to “transporting results”. At the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Heinali streamed concerts from a bomb shelter in an effort to raise funds for the Ukrainian army and to support humanitarian efforts. Big recommendation for fans of anything between Biosphere, Floating Points and Caterina Barbieri. Modular ambient of the highest caliber.
