Inside Out with I.N.K. Experiment, robot orchestra and Chui

Date created: 11.06.2018.

Inside Out is the title of a unique music evening that will take place as part of the 69th Dubrovnik Summer Festival on 4 August. The first part of the programme will take place inside the City Walls, by the Great Onofrio Fountain, while the second part will be held outside the Walls, in Orsula Park. I.N.K. Experiment Duo, composed of percussionists Ivana Kuljerić Bilić and Nikola Krbanyevitch, is the link between the multimedia project Arabesques pour des ombres imMobiles and the concert of Chui, a young quartet which already enjoys a cult status on the Croatian music scene. Entry is free.

The evening starts at 21:30 by the Great Onofrio Fountain with interactive performance of I.N.K. Experiment Duo, a dynamic and creative percussion duo composed of top percussionists Ivana Kuljerić Bilić and Nikola Krbanyevitch, and robot percussion ensemble Chimères Orchestra, created by French authors gathered in the Reso-nance Numérique collective led by Jérôme Abel, with sound design and software manipulation by electro-acoustics engineer and artist Miodrag Gladović. The robots were first used as exhibits during the celebration of European Heritage Days in Longueil-Annel in France in 2011.

The programme continues in Orsula Park at 23:00 with performance of Chui, a young quartet whose blend of contemporary dance club music, jazz and electronics and their uncompromising rock 'n' roll approach already earned them a cult status. The critics have already labelled them as leaders of the renaissance of the Croatian jazz scene, and their album Chui ovu glazbu, which was recorded with the Croatian Radio and Television Jazz Orchestra, brought them two Porin Awards this year, for Best Album and Best Jazz Performance. Chui members are Toni Starešinić – keyboards and electronics, Vojkan Jocić – sax & electronics, Ivan Levačić – drums and Konrad Lovrenčić – bass. Percussionists Ivana Kuljerić Bilić and Nikola Krbanyevitch will also be performing in Orsula Park.

The programme is supported by Lokrum Island Nature Reserve. Entry is free, with organised bus transfer to Orsula Park.
