"Tell me about... " - following the footsteps of thoughts of exceptional artists from Dejana Sekulic on Vimeo.

More details and information of this project are going to be published soon on: www.dejanasekulic.com

This video preview is an interlude and was a spark of inspiration for initiating and starting up artistic research.
The main concept of this artistic research (or rather artistic journey) is dealing, expressing and searching for new technique, technical expressions, contemporary music lines and meaning, thus broadening violin technique and repertoire. You will be able to follow updates and if you would like, you could also take part in some parts and performances of this project.

    ❙ •About the trio

    This trio first gathered for a specific project, performance of two contemporary pieces (A. Dumont: Eglog and a piece by G. Francoise), but playing and performing together (in various concerts, some of which took place in Bozar-Brussels, Flagey -Brussels, Maison de Poesie-Namur) they found that they share the same passion and desire to broaden and expand the form of contemporary repertoire, for this chamber group. Especially interesting for trio is that this kind of trio was particularly popular in 18th century and was portrayed by artists such as Watteau and Rameau, when portraying the atmosphere of the “Salon”, and music as a “soundtrack” to life often played at those very home salons. Having in mind what music represented then, and giving an homage to this time, their idea is to broaden the bond and performance expression of the trio, to further enrich and present pieces of contemporary music, contemporary take on subjects of music and its presence in the soundscape of everyday life. Employing contemporary instruments and even more contemporary techniques, goal is to have new pieces written inspired by this idea of combining diverse spaces for performing music, musical meanings and searching for inspiration in both entertaining but also enlightening, inner search spheres and even giving social statements. Taking the past and tradition as starting points only to transform it to “today” and view of “what’s coming”.

  • Duo_Ascic_Sekulic

    Ursula (Aščić) i Dejana su se upoznale i započele saradnju tokom studija na Kraljevskom Konzervatorijumu u Briselu. Vrlo brzo su otkrile kako dele sličan način razmišljanja, osećanja, razumevanja i doživljavanja muzike i umetničkih formi. Ovo je dovelo do spajanja dva umetnika, svaka sa svojim individualnim pristupom a opet dovljno sličnim da se nesmetano stope u jedan zajednički umetnički izraz. Duo nastoji da, sa svakim novim koncertom, obogati svoje muzičko putovanje, šireći dalje udobnost i lakoću u razmenu i ispoljavanju ideja, emocija i boja muzike. U sve to uključujući i uticaj neizbežnog "trećeg" člana njihovog dueta - publiku.

    •Detaljan opis deACT sastava/projekta je trenutno dostupan samo na engleskom jeziku.

    deACT is DeArtCollective. Music, and art in general, are very important for us, as they enrich our lives and culture. We were brought together by desire to create art through music and we would also to share it and spread awareness of its importance.
    We were all students at Brussels' Conservatory immersed in our own projects, when our paths began to cross each other. This is when we decided to combine our ideas and visions and start working together. And the idea of an artistic collective was “born”.
    We strive to show how, for us, the classical music comes as close as any other type of music. How it can be fun. How it can be serious. How it can be deep, yet when it is necessary, very light. deACT gives us freedom to explore this. We formed deACT as a collective, to stay individuals in a group, but without making borders between each other. Because we felt that only this way, together, we can create something greater and better.
    For us, being part of a collective is not only about playing along other musicians. It is also about an exchange of ideas and thoughts through music between each other, and further sharing and exchanging (ideas) with our audience. Including and interacting with audience for creating better and greater experience not only from musical pleasure point of view, but also from rising general standards and expectations music and culture can bring. The communication between musicians is very important. Having established a good basis of communication and feeling comfortable, yet inspired for going further, we are careful and “picky” when it comes to involving new musicians. However, we are always open and happy in meeting and exploring new possibilities to “join forces” and add new people and artists. Because, as deACT grows, so does our idea of spreading the music and culture to people, involving audience and communicating with them…
    This “structure” of different combinations of members allows us to have diverse artists depending on an idea or a concept of the upcoming concerts and projects. Or if necessary, less. Nevertheless, we all work together on developing us as a collective, keeping in mind that in order for that to happen, each member has also to individually develop and advance as an artist.
    We try not to be bound by periods in music. We strive to perform music from all periods – from ancient to contemporary. Because our goal is performing and teaching valuable and important aspects of music and musical history, so that the modern day performer or “music lover” can have good foundation and form an opinion that would lead them in their future life with classical (and any other kind) of music. Of course, taste can vary and that is something what we discuss, but we help each other find beauty and meaning in every piece we decide to play. This way, the audience can also feel the structure of each piece and understand and feel it better.
    Beside concert performances, deACT activities include chamber music workshops and music initiation for children.
