An evening of short concerts of experimental music, in the performance of young Slovak musicians and artists connected with transitions to the visual digital projection and contemporary dance.



6 June 2017 at 18:00 at the Worker House in Banska Bystrica.

The new platform in the field of experimental music and its transitions, called EXTRAKT FESTIVAL, offers the opportunity for author’s realization by musicians and artists working on the Slovak scene. One of the aims of the festival is to integrate the newly reconstructed premises of the Worker House in Banská Bystrica into the local – and, at the same time, the whole of the Slovak art community, and to increase the awareness of these spaces to the general public.

We create a close collaboration with the Academy of Arts in Banská Bystrica and engage students in the program where we provide them with the opportunity to have personal contact with the professional scene of experimental music, possible participation in the project and the possibility of future professional creative development. The venue will be a series of concerts during one evening. Target groups are creative people moving to artistic communities, artists, high school students and the general public. The event will take place during the 20th anniversary of the Academy of Arts in Banská Bystrica.

The festival was sponsored by the Slovak Arts Council.
