Disappeariing’ is an ambiental installation for magnet tapes and psycho-navigative electro-acoustics with video projections.

Performance will be using the recordings which emerged in the electronic studio of Radio Belgrade during the workshop Synthi 100. It is a top-notch analog-digital synth from 1971, made in 30 pieces, and which represents the central device of Radio Belgrade electronic studio, restored in 2017, after had been out of order for more than a decade. EMS Synthi 100 contains 30 sources, 50 treatments, 60 controling consoles, 11 gauges, as well as a digital sequencer.

Composition ’Disappeariing’ is devoted to the Dutch conceptual artist Bas Jan Ader (1942 – 1975), whose last performance was the crossing of the Atlantic ocean in a small sailing boat. Author disappeared at the ocassion. Namely, in 1975 Ader embarked on what he called “a very long sailing trip.” The voyage was to be the middle part of a triptych called “In Search of the Miraculous,” a daring attempt to cross the Atlantic in a 12½ foot sailboat. He claimed it would take him 60 days to make the trip, or 90 if he chose not to use the sail. Six months after his departure, his boat was found, half-submerged off the coast of Ireland, but Bas Jan had vanished.

This event celebrating the Leonardo magazine 50th anniversary program.
