Ivan Umeljić, head of the Department for Publishing and Media Production of the Center for Promotion of Science Belgrade and author of the exhibition concept, will lead the audience through the illustration exhibition “Behind Objectivity – Visual Metaphors in Science”. The author’s tour starts at 6 p.m. and will last until 7 p.m., when the program “Drummer and Musicians from the Machine” begins.
It is about a multi-hour, exciting musical performance by drummer Saša Ranković, who, through the process of creating a piece of music, combines the concept of science and music. The rhythms, accents and breaks performed by the drummer will be accompanied by the reactions of the virtual bassist, pianist and saxophonist. The abundance of frequencies that the drums produce allow the other instruments to build melody and harmony. Thus, the visitors will have the opportunity to engage directly in the interaction by hitting the drum, which will produce reactions from other instruments, to which Saša Ranković will have his response by using the most classic old jazz set of “Gretsch” drums. Free and unprepared drumming will enable simulating a joint performance with live musicians and together with the audience create completely original and spontaneous musical works on the spot.
Saša Ranković is a performer of instrumental music on drums, professor of philosophy, member of the Rambo Amadeus band, who has been performing and creating with the most prominent jazz musicians here and in the region for 25 years. He is engaged in composing and producing music and researches in the field that combines science and music, and his musical endeavours are mainly compositions whose basic elements are improvisation and interaction.
