In this lecture I would like to talk about how I think about audiovisual composition and how I think about and work with my central compositional material - (tight) audiovisual objects.

My audiovisual practice revolves around the idea of pluralistic audiovisual paradigm where sound and image are of equal importance and where most compositional decisions are made on a basis of cross-fertilization between both modalities. Therefore in my work both image or sound can either lead or follow. Also, as it is often the case, I work with real-time audiovisual objects where 3D geometry movement generates sounds, rhythms or colours. Different audiovisual relationships and hierarchies hence co-exist in my work and I try to exploit them as a compositional parameter.

Tadej Droljc is an interdisciplinary artist who works in the field of electronic music, audiovisual composition, sound for picture and intermedia art. His work mainly consists of composing, sound design, sound visualisation, image sonification, programming musical and audiovisual instruments and effects or designing and programming systems for interactive/intermedia installations. In the past he was also working as a musical journalist on a radio for 9 years. At the moment he is focusing on a non-hierarchical audiovisual composition based on real-time audiovisual objects where the lines between mentioned segments of production are completely blurred. His audiovisual research is being funded by Slovenian Ministry of Culture and University of Huddersfield’s Centre for Research in New Music (CeReNeM) where he was awarded Dennis Smalley scholarship for electronic music and where he’s currently teaching and pursuing a doctorate. In 2017 Tadej won a Most Promising Video Artist Award at the Madatac festival in Madrid with his work Capillaries (which should not be confused with Capillaries Capillaries).

In recent years Tadej collaborated or executed projects for institutions or individuals such as Mini Teater, Radio Študent, POP TV, Kiberpipa, K4, Rampa Lab, IRZU (Institute for Sonic Research), Saša Spačal, Martin Bricelj Baraga, Bright Visuals, Rotonda Museum, ...
